Lawmakers Prayed Together Before Last Night’s Congressional Baseball Game

The Congressional Baseball Game is typically a pretty lighthearted event where Democrat and Republican lawmakers play against each other in a matchup to raise money for charity.

But last night’s event took on a different tone.

Earlier this week, a gunman opened fire on a Republican baseball practice, critically injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. Before the game, lawmakers knelt in the middle of the field and prayed together.

It was a powerful moment of unity.
