For All The Right Reasons
With Stephen Strasburg making his Major League debut tonight at Nationals Park one day after Our Washington Nationals chose Bryce Harper with the first pick in the 2010 Entry Draft, the entire baseball universe seems to be focused on baseball in the nation's capital. A packed house is expected this evening in Washington, D.C. Over 200 media members have been granted credentials. MLB Network is broadcasting the game live. Everyone is talking about Our Washington Nationals. The fan interest and media attention spotlight fixated on the product D.C.'s Team is producing on the field--not distracting issues from off the field.
The second most important game ever played by Our Washington Nationals (only exceeded by Opening Night, 2005 at RFK Stadium) will be contested this evening at Nationals Park versus The Pittsburgh Pirates. For All The Right Reasons, the fanfare and newsworthy coverage is just about baseball.
Major League Baseball in Washington, D.C.
This evening is going to be a fun night at the ballpark. Sohna and I are just going to sit back and enjoy the moments. We hope you do too.
