Scalise watches LSU baseball game – The Hill
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) watched a Louisiana State University baseball game Saturday evening as he recovers from a gunshot wound.
“Steve is watching @LSUbaseball, rooting hard for a big Tigers win tonight! #CWS #LSU,” the House majority whip’s Twitter account said. LSU, which beat Florida State, 5-4, in the College World Series, is the congressman’s alma mater.
The most recent update from Medstar Washington said Scalise was upgraded to serious condition and underwent another surgery Saturday.

“He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones. The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers,” MedStar said.
Scalise was shot last Wednesday at a baseball practice field in Alexandria, Va. when an assailant opened fired on GOP lawmakers and staffers one day before the annual Congressional baseball game.
