Nationals Plus

SEEN AND HEARD AT Nationals PARK

The Nationals honored the University of Virginia Baseball team before Sunday's game, a nice recognition for a team that is coming off the best season in program history. Ryan Zimmerman, a proud former Cavaliers player, met with UVa players on the field during the ceremony and offered his congrats. Noticeably absent, though, was Stephen Strasburg. The No. 1 draft pick and former San Diego State ace, of course, suffered his only loss of the season May 29 against Virginia in the NCAA regionals. Probably better that he wasn't present.
