Lawmakers Wearing LSU Colors Tonight For Steve Scalise

ALEXANDRIA, VA - Lawmakers will be wearing LSU's purple and gold colors as they participate in Thursday's Congressional Baseball Game for charity.

According to ABC News, both Republicans and Democrats participating in the game will don Louisiana State University's colors as they battle it out in the historic charity ball game.

The sudden uniform swap is meant to honor Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise, who remains in critical condition after he was shot in Virginia Wednesday morning. 

In the run-up to the game, which is scheduled to be played at Nationals Park, both sides -- Republicans and Democrats -- hold early-morning practices in neighborhoods around Washington. Scalise was attending the GOP's practice session when a gunman opened fire, injuring him and four others.

The annual game has been played since 1909. In recent years, it has raised $600,000 for charity. 


You can watch the Congressional Baseball Game For Charity on their Facebook page. 


In addition, and Deadline are both reporting that the public affairs cable network C-SPAN will televise the game. Coverage will also reportedly be streamed via the C-SPAN website, although viewers must log in with their television provider in order to view the live stream.
