House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was wounded by a gunman while practicing for a charity baseball game in June, will throw out the first pitch before the Washington Nationals-Chicago Cubs playoff game on Friday night, The Hill reports.
The game is being held at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. — the site of the annual Congressional Baseball Game, The Hill noted. Scalise, R-La., and three others were shot while Republican lawmakers practiced for that game in Virginia.
Scalise had made his return to Capitol Hill last week while still recovering from the shooting.
He suffered a single gunshot wound to his left hip and sustained "significant damage" to his blood vessels, bones and some internal organs, his doctor said at the time, according to CNN.
