GOP House Whip Steve Scalise just threw out the 1st pitch at Game 1 of Nationals vs. Cubs in D.C. … just 6 months after being shot and seriously injured at a Congressional baseball game.
With the help of a walker, Steve made it out to the mound and fired a perfect strike to home plate — garnering a standing O from the crowd.
Pretty amazing considering Scalise was fighting for his life after taking a bullet in the hip back in June.
FYI, Steve returned to Capitol Hill on Sep. 28 after months of rehab — tweeting, “I’m back.”
Steve Scalise ceremonial first pitch. Majority liberal fanbase puts politics aside, gives loud applause. Classy Nats fans, very classy. pic.twitter.com/wbfQilbJ7L
