The Washington Nationals appears to have caught Caps playoff fever and they don’t care who knows it.
Last weekend, the team watched the Capitals-Bruins game during batting practice at Citizens Bank Park. A few days later, outfielder Adam Eaton took his son to practice at Kettler. On Saturday, the Nationals attended Game Two at Verizon Center.
Pitcher Max Scherzer was first to break the news, telling Grant Paulsen on Friday that he and a few other Nats players would attend. The full Nats crew included Scherzer, Michael A. Taylor, Trea Turner, Ryan Zimmerman, Adam Eaton, Vegas Golden Knights fan Bryce Harper, and their significant others.
