Today is the one year anniversary of the senseless gun violence that severely injured Congressman Steve Scalise, and three other innocent individuals, as they practiced for the annual bipartisan congressional baseball game. Happily, Mr. Scalise, who almost died of his injuries, has recovered quite well, although still sports a cane. Fortunately the three others were not wounded as severely.
The history of the annual game, which dates to 1909, has intended to showcase America’s congressional baseball players of both parties, enjoying America’s national sport.
Tonight’s game, marking the event will begin at 7:05pm EST at the Washington Nationals Ballpark.
