To honor the Nationals bringing baseball back to D.C. after a 33-year absence, Chad Cordero and Brian Schneider of the inaugural 2005 Nationals will throw and catch the ceremonial first pitch on Friday night.
WORLD SERIES GAME 4 – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26
On Saturday, the ceremonial first pitch will be thrown by a Nationals Youth Baseball Academy scholar-athlete, accompanied by current Nationals and big supporters of the Academy, Anthony Rendon and Max Scherzer.
WORLD SERIES GAME 5 – SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27
If a Game 5 is necessary, the Nationals will welcome chef and humanitarian José Andrés to throw a ceremonial first pitch.
