I mentioned that the Nationals signed their #1 draft choice, Stephen Strasburg.
When the Nats formally introduced Strasburg to the media and fans, they invited fans to attend the press conference on the afternoon of August 21st. I took the afternoon off work so I could attend the press conference at Nationals Park. It was pretty cool!
Rain was in the weather forecast for the afternoon, but Mother Nature cooperated by keeping the rain away until the press conference had ended. We got quite a bit of rain between the end of the press conference and the start of that night’s game vs. the Brewers…and on Stephen Strasburg day, there was a rainbow over Nationals Park!
