Gratitude For Your NATITUDE
The 2012 season has been a truly special one for Nationals players on the field and for those of us in the front office. But it would have meant nothing without the overwhelming show of NATITUDE from you, the fans. That’s why, this morning, the Lerner family has extended its gratitude to our fans in the Washington Post. Read their message below, and make sure to pick up a copy of the Post for yourself.
The 2012 Washington Nationals season will be one we will never forget! Thank you Nationals fans for your unparalleled support of the team. You dressed in red and Curly W’s, shouted your hearts out, came in the rain and in the blazing heat and, by your actions, let America know that D.C. is a baseball town!
The electric atmosphere at Nationals Park during the last month of the regular season and into the playoffs is precisely what Major League Baseball and D.C. leaders envisioned when they brought baseball back to Washington. The crowds and the excitement along the Anacostia River brought new life to the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood and ignited a new spirit across the Washington community that became known as “Natitude.”
Mike Rizzo, Davey Johnson, the players, coaches and front office staff made this a season that we will recall with great pride and joy. As thrilled as we all are with being the Nationals League East Division Champions and having the most wins in Major League Baseball during the regular season, we are now more determined than ever to see a World Series trophy return to Washington, D.C.
We look forward to seeing you on Opening Day in 2013. Your enthusiasm was the most memorable part of our great season. The team may have brought the performance, but you brought the passion.
Only 165 Days until Opening Day, 2013. See you there.
