Bailey is a member of Congressman Steve Scalise's protective detail.
Instead of wearing hats representing their home teams, as is the normal tradition, players on both teams will be wearing Louisiana State University hats in honor of Scalise, a Louisiana Republican.
The gunman died after being wounded in a gunfight with police. "We are forever grateful for the heroism" of the officers, she said. Investigators are trying to determine what his intent may have been - whether it was a list of potential targets for violence or whether he wrote them down for some other reason, one official said. Lawmakers called for a new dialogue on lowering the partisan temperature, and Trump urged Americans to come together as he assumed the role of national unifier for one of the first times in his presidency.
The senior Republican is at the Medstar Washington Hospital Centre with a rifle wound in his left hip that shattered bones, tore organs and caused severe bleeding.
In a final flourish of bipartisan camaraderie for the night, Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, his team's manager, accepted the trophy, then gave it to his GOP counterpart, Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, to put in Scalise's office on behalf of the Democrats. The 51-year-old remains in a critical condition.
James T. Hodgkinson, was killed by police after the Wednesday shooting rampage. On Wednesday night, Trump, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, visited Scalise at the hospital. His social media contained anti-Trump and anti-Republican posts. This year's baseball game, played at Nationals Park in Southeast Washington, looks to be a place where members can show it.
Scalise - seen here after being shot in the hip - underwent another surgery Saturday.
A gunman opened fire on the Republican baseball team's practice before Thursday's annual charity baseball game, critically wounding Scalise, R-La., and injuring three other people as horrified legislators and staffers scrambled for cover amid a barrage of bullets.
On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement that it continues to process evidence and "to assess the potential motivations of the single shooter".
The FBI and the Alexandria Police Department said in a joint statement Thursday that federal authorities had examined the rifle and handgun recovered from the scene and determined that Hodgkinson had bought them from licensed sellers.
