"It's been a long road to this day.

I'm grateful for the support and prayers from my colleagues and friends," Scalise, No.

3 Republican in the House of Representatives, wrote on Twitter.

"They were with me the entire way.

Let's play some baseball!" Members of Congress took to the field in Washington for Thursday night's charity game.

Scalise, 52, was critically injured early on the morning of June 14, 2017 when 66-year-old James Hodgkinson shot at Republican lawmakers as they practiced in Alexandria, Virginia for an annual charity baseball game between Republicans and Democrats.

Scalise was hit in his left hip, sustaining injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding.
