Congressional baseball game still on for Thursday

Posted: Updated:
ALEXANDRIA, VA -

Officials say that Thursday's congressional baseball game will still go on despite Wednesday's shooting in Virginia.

Republican Congress members were practicing for the game at an Alexandria field when the alleged gunman, James Hodgkinson of Illinois, opened fire and wounded four people.

The annual game is usually a light hearted affair, pitting Democrats against Republicans for charity.

Thursday night's game will be played at Nationals park, home to the Washington Nationals.
