I received the alert from WTOP not long ago that tomorrow’s Opening Day game between the Nationals and Reds in Cincy has been postponed due to inclement weather.
Instead, the game will be played and all of the Opening Day festivities held, on Friday 3/31 at 4:05p.
Scherzer is still expected to take the mound.
I just hope the boys bring back plenty of Curly Ws from this upcoming run on the road.
Days until Opening Day:
Reesie, my good friend and colleague, and I are headed to West Palm Beach, FL for a quick getaway from the erratic DC weather and of course…Nationals Spring Training games!!!
With NATS Plus, 4 tickets to a single Spring Training game are included in the membership. So of course we pooled resources to get the best experience. We’ll have a chance to catch some batting practice (BP) and the games against the Marlins and Astros home at the FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches.
Ironically, it’s a pretty mild day here in the District, but winter weather is headed this way, so this trip couldn’t be more timely.
I’m excited to see Adam Eaton and the rest of the guys back in action, as well as the new additions to the team!
See you in WPB!
Days until Opening Day: 11
Not to be confused with the official start of the MLB regular season.
But this is the day my journey starts…here. The day I begin to open up about my love for baseball, ballpark eats, and THE Washington Nationals!
I’m a newbie in this blogging world but I’m excited to share my experiences with you and I’m looking forward to seeing how this thing evolves.
I’m hoping you’ll join me for this ride. And a ride it will be…full of extreme highs and the biggest let downs. This sport isn’t for the weak at heart. It can progress slowly yet keep you on the edge of your seat. It’ll test your patience and your body’s sympathetic nervous system, through 9+ innings and then send your ass on what seems to be the longest walk back to the Navy Yard metro station…to wait on an overcrowded platform. Let me tell you, when walking away without a Curly W, the wait on that platform for the next train is waaaaay too long.
But baseball will also have you coming back. Coming back for one more win. For the double play. For the sweep. For the home run. For the who just called up from the Minors. For the no-hitter. For 161 more games. FOR THE NL EAST!
I know what some of you might be saying, “Baseball? Really?!”
Yesssssssssss baseball! Just watch…I’ll show you 🙂
