Dem and GOP baseball managers announce game will go on, call for change in national ‘mood’

Dem and GOP baseball managers announce game will go on, call for change in national ‘mood’Barton and Doyle, the managers of the Republican and Democratic baseball teams, also said they added a fund for the families of fallen police officers to the list of charities the baseball game will benefit, to recognize the U.S. Capitol Police officers who saved lives Wednesday. Barton was on the field when a gunman shot and wounded Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Calif., and four others: a congressional staffer, a lobbyist and two police officers. Barton said it appeared the man identified as the shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, was motivated by political animosity toward Republicans. “Members are not looked at as people anymore, we’re kind of looked at — I don’t want to say as targets, but people think they can come to our town hall meetings and say just the most obnoxious things and think we won’t feel it personally,” Barton said.
