House Majority Whip Steve Scalise returned to the baseball field nearly a year since a gunman seriously wounded him during a congressional baseball practice.

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake shared a photo of the Louisiana congressman mid-throw sporting a baseball glove and a bright yellow Louisiana State University jersey.

“@SteveScalise back on the field this morning. This does my heart good,” he wrote.

On June 14, a gunman shot four people, including Scalise, at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va. Scalise was transported to the hospital in critical condition and underwent multiple surgeries. He returned to work on Sept. 28, 2017.
