House Majority Whip Steve Scalise returned to the baseball diamond Wednesday for the first time since the 2017 shooting in northern Virginia that nearly took his life.
The Republican congressman tweeted a video of himself tossing the baseball with his colleagues, saying “It was great to be on the ball field this morning. Can’t wait for @TheHillBaseball on June 14th!”

The GOP representative continues to recover from the incident that took place last June when he was shot in the hip after a madman opened fire on a Congressional baseball practice session outside the capital.
The Capitol Police were operating as the lawmakers’ security detail that day, and were able to take down the gunman within seconds.
