A new tradition at Nats Park

After Thursday’s 6-5 win over the defending National League Champion Phillies, Willie Harris was sporting a silver colored plastic wig that looked a lot like something Elvis would wear.

Actually the getup was something Nyjer Morgan had worn as a costume.

The wig will be worn by the designated “Player of the Game” after every Nationals win. On Thursday, Willie Harris wore it well and even began his post-game comments with a bit of an Elvis impersonation with his voice.

Harris noted how there is a lot of character in the Nationals clubhouse this year, and he added that it will be a lot of fun to see Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman wearing the wig sometime too.
