Scalise returned to Congress in September after being shot in the hip in June 2017, and he creditedthe Capitol Police serving as his security detail with saving him and others who were defenseless on the scene.

“It was great to be on the ball field this morning,” Scalise tweeted. “Can’t wait for @TheHillBaseball on June 14th!”

Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade noted Utah Rep. Mia Love will take Scalise’s former spot at second base. Love said the team will be celebrating Scalise’s survival at the game.

“It’s going to be a celebration of survival,” Love said. “They didn’t take my friend Scalise out.”
