Nats U (Baseball For Women) – Postponed!

NatsU has been indefinitely postponed due to the day/night doubleheader with the Braves caused by a previous rainout. Those who already bought tickets will be automatically refunded. No ETA on a makeup date is available at this time. Bummer! Wow, look, a Baseball 101 photo from RFK days! (Last year's Nats U at Nats Park) Anyway, Nats U is returning again for the annual day women get to take to the field, bullpen and batting cages for a day of instruction and ... Continue Reading

Getting to know… G-G-G-Gio

Getting to know… G-G-G-Gio

Meet "The Goofball". Gio Gonzalez may be one of the most entertaining additions to the Nats this season - and he pitches well to boot! Who didn't he endear himself to with that giant grin after hitting a double? Yet, sometimes his interview responses can be filled with baseball cliches, so I was curious to see his Q&A session in the Stars & Stripes Club Saturday. Sure, his session was still full of cliches, but delivered in an endearing ... Continue Reading

Yin and Yang of Injuries

Yin and Yang of Injuries

In my day job, if I were to get hit by a truck while scootering to the office, the other person on my team would likely get my "Lead" role by default. Good for him. Bad for me. I've been wearing more safety gear lately just in case no matter how hot it is. In baseball, injuries both break and make careers in an odd yin and yang sort of way. No one wants to cheer an injury with the knowledge ... Continue Reading

Ignite Your Tweetitude

Posted on May 19, 2012 at 7:14 pm

If you're on the Tweeter and a Nats fan, the event you've been waiting for is coming. On July 3rd when the Nationals host the San Francisco Giants, they will also host their first ever team sponsored Tweetup. All you have to do is tweet to the team account "@Nationals RSVP #IYNT" for "Ignite Your Natitude Tweetup". The more fans who RSVP, the better the seat upgrade. I say we overwhelm them and end up in the Prez Club. What say ... Continue Reading

Just dusting off a few cobwebs around here this morning... The pollen and dust sure did pile up since spring training. Continue Reading

Nationals doing PR for NationalsPR on Twitter

Posted on February 24, 2012 at 4:09 pm

I give Drew Storen props for at least doing a little rewording. And of course, I already follow @NationalsPR , so I merely find this echo somewhat amusing. Now get to tweeting other stuff, boys! I do have to say, however, that NationalsPR is tweeting the most non-BadSpringTrainingTwitpics pics out of Viera so far. Share“BTW if you are looking for a behind-the-scenes look at Spring Training 2012, give a follow to @NationalsPR.DrewStorenThu, Feb 23 2012 22:52:33ReplyRetweetShare“Follow @NationalsPR for a behind-the-scenes look ...

Food trucks go inside – UncurbedDC

Posted on December 12, 2011 at 9:47 pm

Baseball On The Barn goers may remember the scrumptious food provided by BBQBusDC barn-side earlier this summer. Not only is their food the most mouth-watering BBQ around, the guys behind the "Bus" are two of the nicest you'll ever meet. They're bold, witty and always so kind-hearted! I loved their enthusiastic YouTube videos of initial attempts to pick up the Bus, believing it ready to hit the curbs of DC. What could have been disappointment was instead met with humor. ...

Walk-off hit by pitch

Posted on August 21, 2011 at 8:31 pm

Wait, you can embed videos now?!?! Woot! Nationals win the Phillies series at home on a walk-off hit by pitch, even if it felt like, "no place but home". Well, poop, I found the embed code, but apparently the answer is no, you can't. Continue Reading

Beast Mode Morse Raps

Posted on August 5, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Ah, there are definitely perks to my job and today's frustrating bit of troubleshooting was greatly brightened when I spotted this video in the queue. I impatiently waited until it was published on the site and snapped up that embed code pronto! There has been lots of chatter about Michael Morse's "Beast Mode" shirt this season and much love for his use of A-Ha's "Take On Me" in about every other at bat. Well, now you get to revel in it ...

Guinea Pig Files: Stealing 2nd Base

Fretting over my wardrobe options prior to the "Stealing 2nd Base" event without the slightest thought of running shorts on my mind, we received a phone call about an hour before leaving for Saturday's game. "Can you run? We'd like you to run in from center field to get the base," Oh my! My husband asked, "Both of us?" and the response was only one of us could go on the field, so he ever so sweetly allowed me to ... Continue Reading
