T-9 days to pitchers and catchers reporting.

Speaking of Nats Park – New Backpack Policy:

From the Nats on Friday:

“Today, the Washington Nationals announced that beginning with the 2019 season backpacks may not be brought into Nationals Park, except as otherwise provided in the Nationals Bag Policy. The policy was revised in order to enhance ballpark safety. Exceptions may be made for backpack diaper bags or backpacks used for ADA/medical reasons. All purses, briefcases, drawstring bags, diaper bags and soft-sided coolers that do not exceed 16″x16″x8” will still be permitted. On the day of purchase, backpacks bought during games or events at Nationals Park will be tagged and permitted for that day only. (more…)

“Your favorite oyster bar has teamed up with your favorite baseball team. Welcome to Hank’s at the Park!”

Update: Hank’s got a little premature in their excitement, “Hank’s Oyster Bar / Jamie Leeds Restaurant Group is still in talks with Nationals Stadium to be at the ballpark.” Updates if/when it’s finalized.

It’s been a long week. It’s gonna be a longer weekend. So indulge me!! I was talking with a buddy of mine about an essential question: what song would you walk out to if you were lucky enough to be a professional baseball player. Ed. Note: Go Nats!! This is a very, very hard question – you can only pick one song. After much consideration I ultimately went with Sure Shot. What’s yours?

Following yesterday’s apology by Trea Turner are a series of tweets from a true class act – Sean Doolittle:

“It’s been a tough couple of weeks for baseball on twitter. It sucks to see racist and homophobic language coming from inside our league – a league I’m so proud to be a part of that I’ve worked really hard to make a more accepting and inclusive place for all our fans to enjoy.”
