Those four magic words…


Airal Shot of Space coast stadium.jpgThose four magic words: “Pitchers and catchers report,” can excite and entice baseball fans like nothing else. For the Nationals, those words carry more hope and promise than ever before.

 

Between the record snowfall in the Washington, DC area and (believe it or not) one of the coldest winters in recent memory in the state of Florida, those four magic words mean that fresh green grass and warm spring days are just around the corner.

 

Today marks the first practice for pitchers and catchers at the Washington Nationals Spring home in Viera, Fla. and fans are buzzing like never before.

 

From the excitement of having last year’s No. 1 overall pick Stephen Strasburg in camp to the offseason signings of future Hall-of-Famer Ivan Rodriguez, Jason Marquis  and former back-to-back 19-game winner Chien-Ming Wang, the pieces of the puzzle are coming together.

 

Look for continued updates from the first day of workouts with pitchers and catchers, as we catch up with players and fans as Spring Training officially begins.
