WASHINGTON — An agent wounded during the mass shooting at a practice round for the annual congressional baseball game threw out the first pitch at the Congressional Women’s softball game Wednesday.

Special Agent Crystal Griner was hospitalized for an ankle gunshot wound after a gunman opened fire last week on the Republican baseball team’s practice, Fox 5 reported. Griner was feeling well enough to come throw out the first pitch from her wheelchair.

Griner was one of the five injured in the shooting. Rep. Steve Scalise’s condition has been updated from critical to serious condition, the news station reported. The suspect was killed in the gunfire.
