Baseball

If you’re a baseball fan, heading to a Nationals game is definitely a must. If you’re a fan of quality hot dogs, good beer, and grand slams, make sure you head to the next Nats game!

The Nationals are a Major League Baseball team that has been in Washington DC since 1971. The team is the eighth team to make its home in Washington DC.

You’ll usually find the Nationals playing at National Park in the city. It’s a huge outdoor stadium where you can enjoy good food and fun as you watch a sports game. The arena is right near the Navy Yard, so it’s a gorgeous area as well with plenty of vendors to choose from.

Some of the key players in the Nationals include Adam Eaton, Ryan Zimmerman, and Stephen Strasburg. A year ago, the Washington Nationals was proud to be home to Bryce Harper, a right fielder and overall superstar for the MLB. He now has been traded to the Philadelphia Phillies.

With his absence, the current roster is excited to finish off the remainder of the season and looking forward to a successful future with new stars.

Adam Eaton, a right fielder has spoken up about how things need to change for the ball club as a whole. Although the club has been experiencing wins, the players are still holding themselves accountable, which is what you would want to see in any successful franchise.

These guys will knock the ball out of the park, so don’t miss the next game!

Basketball

If you’re a basketball fanatic, DC is a great place for a local sense of community and team spirit! DC is home to the Washington Wizards, a franchise that’s been owned by CEO, Ted Leonsis, and senior VP, Tommy Sheppard.

It’s an exciting time for Washington’s basketball franchise. With recent news of the franchise relieving their long-time President, Ernie Grunfeld, the franchise is looking to make some serious changes to their management and overall team trajectory.

As the franchise has struggled in the past to make it to the playoffs this season, future changes in management have given Washington Wizards fans, commonly referred to as “WizKids”, a sense of hope and excitement.

With new management comes the chance of acquiring new key role players and potential superstars from other organizations and adding them to the roster. In the basketball world, one season can be completely different then the following season if the right changes and adjustments are made.

Currently, the Wizards key superstars are John Wall and Bradley Beal.

John Wall, a North Carolina native and point guard for the Wizards, was drafted as the first overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. Known for his quickness and ball-handling abilities, he’s able to not only get his teammates involved but the crowd and fans too. For many years, Wall has been known to be the quickest in the entire NBA roster! When he’s zooming up and down the court to finish a play, there are very few opponents that can keep up with Wall.

Bradley Beal, a shooting guard for the Wizards, is right next to John Wall as his supporting cast. Beal was chosen as the third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. He’s been a very versatile player for the franchise as he’s able to perform and showcase a wide array of skills. As he’s able to shoot from almost anywhere on the floor or drive to the basket for emphatic slam dunks, he’s an extremely valuable piece for the franchise.

Capital One Arena is home to the Wizards so plan out a visit to a game and you won’t be disappointed. Win or lose, the Wizards are sure to put on a competitive game for their fans enjoyment.
