Only a Few Days Left Until It all Begins

Only a few days left until opening day!

I'm actually going to a preseason game tomorrow. The Nats are playing the Yankees. It will be great to be back in the park. It will also be interesting to see the new security measures and how long it takes to get through them.

There's a great story today about Stephen Strasburg in the Post
“The fans, East Coast sports, they’re so much more die-hard,” he said. “Kind of being there from Day 1, with this new team’s resurgence, winning games and the way the fans have really attached and made us their team. It’s just a great feeling. As a baseball fan growing up, you never really saw that in San Diego. It was kind of like, ‘What do you want to do Friday night? Saturday, during the day, you want to go to the beach? Want to go to a Padres game?’ I feel like it wasn’t the number one thing to do. But that’s kind of what Nationals games have become, especially in the summer.”

Here's hoping he has many more years in a Nats' uniform.
