Washington Nationals Playoffs
When the Nationals take to the diamond, the nation's capital stops and pays attention,
and that's because this is a team that is always absolutely loaded with talented players who can do a little bit of everything.
Come out and see all of the towering homers, sensational catches and nail-biting moments that will have you jumping out of
your seat on a regular basis this season as the Nationals hope to pile up the wins in the N.L. East and take another swing
at the postseason. As soon as you're there watching the big game the way it was meant to be seen, you'll understand loud and
clear what all the buzz is about surrounding the Nationals.
There is nothing quite like being there when the Nats take
to the field for a highly anticipated game, and it doesn't get any better than seeing them during the playoffs when the stakes
couldn't be any higher. The Nats are always in the middle of one exciting match-up or another, and seeing playoff baseball
is the cream of the crop if you're a fan of America's Pastime. With the Nats gearing up to make a run at the franchise's first
Fall Classic, you can count on the fans to be hopping all year long.
As baseball has gotten
more and more global, Major League Baseball remains the premier league, which is something you'll see for yourself if you
get out to a great game loaded with the stars of both today and tomorrow. There is something special about being in the stands
when your favorite team storms the diamond, though that's something that you have to see for yourself. Baseball has gained
the reputation as America's Pastime for a reason, and it isn't because there is a lack of excitement from game to game. As
fans already know, it all really comes together in the postseason, making playoff baseball something that every baseball lover
needs to be a part of sooner or later.
With star outfielder Bryce Harper, sensational hurler
Stephen Strasburg and talented infielder Ryan Zimmerman, the Nats have one of those well-rounded teams brimming over with
talent, making them as dangerous as ever as they hope to navigate the always competitive N.L. East. The end goal, of course,
is to make it all the way back to the postseason, giving fans plenty of reasons for optimism as this star-studded team rounds
into form and takes a swing at putting together another season that ends in the playoffs. As soon as you're there watching
the Nats dig in against a prominent foe, it will be pretty obvious why there is no duplicating the stadium experience.
Washington Nationals Trivia
Did you know that Vlad Guerrero holds the all-time franchise record for highest batting
When Bad Vlad was playing in Montreal for the Expos, the franchise that would become the Nationals, Guerrero
was an absolute terror in the batter's box, particularly in 2000. That year, Guerrero didn't need batting gloves to set franchise
records for batting average (.345), slugging percentage (.664) and runs created (154), cementing him as one of the best players
to ever hit for this franchise. Guerrero would then move on to L.A. eventually after blazing a trail to the top of the Expos'
record books in many different categories, and in the new city it was more of the same for one of the best right-handed sluggers
of his generation.
Washington Nationals History
It didn't take long for Nationals fans get a taste for
what a winning team looks like, as they piled up the wins in 2012 and made their first trip to the postseason, giving fans
a taste of what it's like to chase a World Series ring. Before they were the Nats, this franchise had a nice history in Montreal,
with players like Vlad Guerrero, Pedro Martinez and many more dominating for the franchise. In D.C., the Nats haven't had
too much of a chance to build a playoff history, but fans have gotten an early taste of what it's like and this talented squad
is sure to be there plenty of times moving forward.

that you have to get to once in a while if you're a Nats fan, though you're missing out if you haven't yet been there for
a postseason game. Come out and see all of the skyscraping homers, highlight-reel defensive plays and nail-biting moments
that will have you on your feet in no time. Will you be there when your favorite player strolls to the plate with the game
on the line in the late-innings of a game that has all the makings of a classic? We know that you can just stay at home and
let the broadcaster explain to you what the atmosphere of the big game is like, but it's a completely different to actually
be there watching the playoff drama unfold.
