Players on the Republican and Democratic baseball teams will reportedly wear Louisiana State University gear at Thursday’s Congressional Baseball Game in honor of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise (R).

An ABC News reporter said that the staff of Rep. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) was organizing the move.


Scalise, who attended LSU, was shot in the hip during the Republican team’s practice in Alexandria, Va., early Wednesday.

Republicans and Democrats called for unity in the wake of Wednesday’s attack.

"We will use this occasion as one that brings us together," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said following Ryan’s remarks.

Scalise is being treated at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and was in critical condition after undergoing surgery, the hospital said Wednesday afternoon.
