The Republican team was holding its last practice before the game when five people were shot Wednesday morning at a suburban Virginia park, including Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., the third-highest-ranking Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Scalise remained in critical condition on Thursday after the latest surgery.

President Trump said earlier Thursday that Scalise was "in some trouble" following Wednesday's shooting at a baseball field in nearby Alexandria, Va., that left three others injured.

The morning after visiting Scalise in the hospital, Trump said the congressman's challenges are "more difficult" than first thought.

He concluded with a tribute to the game of baseball. "The courageous actions ... saved lives and prevented an even greater tragedy, and the American people are grateful".

Unity after the shooting was the primary theme of the evening, as the AP noted a mention of Scalise from the announcer led to a standing ovation from those thousands of fans. "We love you", congressman John Lewis, representing Georgia, said of Mr Scalise's critical condition.

Before the event, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said: "Tonight we will go to the game, play our hardest, but we will all be Team Scalise".

And President Donald Trump delivered a message on the giant scoreboard before the first pitch. "We need the support of the country behind it, maybe the heated rhetoric on both sides will calm down and would make me happy".

President Donald Trump, who visited Scalise's bedside Wednesday evening, said the No. 3 House Republican "continues his very fearless fight", but that "it's been much more hard than people even thought at the time".

"It's kind of a somber mood", said Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. "It's bipartisan, it's a charity, for crying out loud, it's in Washington D.C., we'll be able to honor Scalise and those others who have hurt".
