There was a question-and-answer session after lunch and then the Nationals players signed autographs for those in attendance. Here is the list of players and front office staff that were in attendance: pitcher Jason Marquis, Nyjer Morgan, Adam Dunn, Ryan Zimmerman, Josh Willingham, John Lannan, reliever Ryan Speier, Craig Stammen, reliever Matt Capps, Tyler Clippard, reliever Brian Bruney, shortstop prospect Danny Espinosa, 2009 first round pick Drew Storen, Manager Jim Riggleman, GM Mike Rizzo, Team President Stan Kasten and broadcaster Rob Dibble.

Hot Stove Tony Plush 5.jpgThe Tony Plush No. 1 Regina Pats jersey was priceless. Morgan played for the Pats of the WHL for a brief stint during the 1999-2000 season. He played in seven games, scored two goals and sat in the penalty box for 20 minutes. Don’t mess with T. Plush when he is on the ice. On the other side of the scale… his teammate that same season Brett Lysak played 70 games and had only 24 penalty minutes.


The caravan will head to the Verizon Center to watch the Caps play the Panthers at 7 p.m. Nationals players will meet with fans and sign autographs in multiple locations at the venue, from 6 to 7 p.m.

“Rocking the Red” at the Caps game with the Nats.
