A Match Made In Heaven
He was The Face of The Franchise for The Expansion Washington Senators.
As friendly and appreciative of his role in baseball as anyone that has ever played the game.
The Nicest Man.
Ole Number 33 & 9 in your scorecard lead The American League in Home Runs Twice and RBI's Once.
No question, Frank Howard was The Finest Player To Call RFK Stadium HIS CAREER HOME.
His personal statistics on East Capitol Street are INCREDIBLE for playing in a ballpark that so many others complained about after Major League Baseball returned to Washington in 2005.
And besides--as is well known here--Frank Howard is My Favorite Player Of All Time!!
The Hero Of My Youth.
And one of Fan Friendliest Players of All-Time.
Frank Howard is adored by many, many baseball fans--not just me.
And now EVERYONE has the chance to appreciate this Great Man--once again.
Upon hearing that Hondo, at 72 Years of Age, is again a Free Agent, (The New York Yankees released him from his scouting contract), there should be NOTHING holding back Our Washington Nationals from getting Big Frank on board with DC Baseball Again.
Frank Loves The Greater Washington Area.
Still Lives Here.
Can keep an audience entertained with stories like few others.
And The DC Arts & Humanities Commission is honoring The Big Guy in Spring 2009 with a commemorative and historical statue.
What better Ambassador of Washington Baseball than Frank Howard representing all that is GOOD IN THE GREAT GAME.
This my friends--Is The Perfect Match.
Hondo wants to be involved in Major League Baseball next year--his 50th in the game.
Our Washington Nationals now have the opportunity to directly link Our Past to Our Present.
Why not as a member of Our Washington Nationals?
Yes, now is the time for Ambassador Frank "Hondo" Howard.
We know Frank would CHERISH THE HONOR.
And Our Fans will CHERISH HIS GOODWILL.
Please, Mr. Lerner and Mr. Kasten, let's make this happen.
Frank Howard and Our Washington Nationals are "A Match Made In Heaven".
PS--Nearly two years ago, Mr. Kasten told me Our Washington Nationals had reached out to Hondo in some capacity to be involved with DC Baseball. His contract with The New York Yankees hindered full involvement. But if Washington was interested then--I can't imagine Our Washington Nationals NOT being interested again today.
