MLB Network to air Dusty Baker documentary on Feb. 9

Since being named as the new manager in early November, Dusty Baker has been busy learning about his new team. While the veteran skipper might prefer to rely on his own eyes at spring training, he met with his new charges during Winterfest weekend and has been having dialogue with key players throughout the offseason. Nationals fans have also been getting to know their new ... read more

Out of the Park: Nats and MASN personalities get ready for spring training

It was a slow week on social media for the Nationals, which must mean we are getting closer to spring training. The guys are probably busy getting their affairs in order, planning their workouts for the next two weeks and setting their packing checklist before heading out for Viera, Fla. However, it seems that we do have some guys who are too eager and are ... read more

#TBT: Anthony Rendon charges grounder, makes great play to first

He's got pop in his bat and range while manning the hot corner. Unfortunately, third baseman Anthony Rendon was limited to 80 games last season due to injury. However, some experts are saying that Rendon could become a top infielder in the National League in 2016. Rendon certainly showed off his talent in the 2014 season. He scored 111 runs en route to finishing fifth ... read more

Out of the Park: The blizzard, Throwback Tuesday and new attire

Well, Winter Storm Jonas came through the area last weekend and crushed D.C. like Bryce Harper crushes fastballs. It also crushed MASN broadcaster F.P. Santangelo's elbow from all the snow it left for shoveling. Is there a Tommy John for shoveling snow? #leftarmprobs -- F.P. Santangelo (@FightinHydrant) January 25, 2016 Although Jonas left everyone stuck in their houses and exhausted from shoveling almost three feet ... read more

#TBT: Walk this way

So what's an easier task: walking four times in a single game or walking down any street in the area without wiping out on the snow and ice? OK, I'll admit the latter is probably a much easier feat in comparison, but I figured I'd try to at least garner some sympathy for my clumsiness. But I digress ... In this week's #TBT, let's look ... read more

Out of the Park: Racing Presidents, Bryce Harper likes that and Nats Park concert

The Nationals family isn't made up of just baseball guys, since they clearly cannot get enough of the NFL playoffs. Granted, the ending to last Saturday's NFC divisional game between the Packers and Cardinals was unlike anything I've ever seen. Sports are just the best, guys. -- Dan Kolko (@masnKolko) January 17, 2016 This game has officially turned into PE -- F.P. Santangelo (@FightinHydrant) January ... read more

Out of the Park: The good and bad from the rest of D.C. sports, plus National Hat Day

Good news: Nationals pitchers and catchers report in almost a month (Feb. 18)! Bad news: One of the other D.C. teams that was holding you over until then finished its season last weekend. Even though the Redskins were handed an early exit in their surprising playoff run at the hands of a 35-18 defeat to the Green Bay Packers, there is a lot of upside ... read more

#TBT: Nats hit four homers, outslug Bronx Bombers

If you missed it, MASN's spring training broadcast schedule was announced yesterday, bringing us just one step closer to the return of baseball. Whether it's from Viera, Fla., or from the broadcast booth at Nats Park, we're excited hear Bob Carpenter's "See you later!" call once again in 2016. And on a May night last season, we got to hear Carpenter call not just one ... read more
