Out of a tragedy comes more attention for causes the victims cared about. Tonight, the Congressional Baseball Game will go on as scheduled at 7:05 p.m. eastern time.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise is still in the hospital after the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, yesterday. Heroic Capitol police officers helped save dozens from being massacred by stepping in and neutralizing the shooter. To honor their heroism and to show the persistence of the American people in the face of terror, the game will go on.
C-SPAN will be broadcasting the game live online here. We will update this post with the embeded video when it starts.
The game benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, and the Washington Literacy Center. The event is now expected to raise more than $1 million.
