House majority whip Steve Scalise returned to the baseball field Wednesday for the first time since he was shot by a leftist gunman during a practice last year in Alexandria, Va.
Republican Senator Jeff Flake tweeted a picture of Scalise throwing the ball, saying, “This does my heart good.”

Rep. Scalise underwent multiple surgeries following last year’s shooting, but has since recovered and is now preparing for the congressional baseball game where Republicans and Democrats will face off on June 14.
