The NL East Champions Banner and Introducing the Players

A great deal of ceremony at this opening day because there was a great deal to celebrate.

They unfurled the NL East Champions banner.

Here's what else the Nationals celebrated yesterday:
with the red-clad fans positioned in their seats in plenty of time for the pregame ceremony in which the Nationals embraced the success of last season by honoring a slew of award winners — Harper as the National League’s rookie of the year, Davey Johnson as the manager of the year, General Manager Mike Rizzo as the executive of the year, and on and on.

I have some video of the introductions which I'll post in the next day or so.
