WASHINGTON, D.C. (WVUE) - New video shows House Majority Whip Steve Scalise back in the batter's box.

The tweet from CNN's correspondent Phil Mattingly shows Scalise taking some batting practice.

Thursday will mark one year to the day since Scalise was shot during a congressional baseball practice.

Since then he's had multiple surgeries, and last month when his colleagues took the field again they did it in his honor.
