In the wake of his college coach, mentor and childhood hero, Tony Gwynn’s death, Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg decided to quit smokeless tobacco once and for all.
When Tony Gwynn died, baseball lost a star. Stephen Strasburg lost a former coach — and a man he calls “part of my family.”
As the baseball world struggles to come to grips with the sudden loss of Tony Gwynn, three Nationals players — Ryan Zimmerman, Drew Storen and Scott Hairston — took the time to offer their thoughts on one of the game’s greatest ambassadors, now gone.
Ryan Zimmerman’s 5th annual “A Night at the Park” brought together a string of Nationals teammates on a rare day off, all in the name of research for Multiple sclerosis.
Ryan Zimmerman says he “doesn’t have a preference” which position he plays, as long as he’s giving his team the best chance to win, because there’s a limited window to try and win, and, “you never know how long it’s gonna last.”
Ryan Zimmerman will return to play third base for the majority of the time once Bryce Harper returns to the Nationals lineup from injury, manager Matt Williams told the Junkies on Friday.
Redskins fans react viscerally to photos of Bryce Harper wearing a Dallas Cowboys hat over the weekend, calling in with their vitriol to 106.7 The Fan’s Lavar and Dukes on Monday.
Matt Williams offered high praise of Ryan Zimmerman for his first-career appearance in left field, but hasn’t ruled out moving him back to third before Bryce Harper’s return.
After 1,119 major league games at third base and one at shortstop, Ryan Zimmerman arrived at the ballpark Tuesday listed as an outfielder, playing left and batting fifth in the posted lineup for the Washington Nationals in their series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Major League Baseball players don’t get a lot of time off during the season, so Doug Fister spent his day off in his driveway Monday, fixing the headlights of his own truck.
