Covering the Bases: Matt Capps

Tune in Thursday to learn all about former Pirates' closer Matt Capps during MASN's weekly Covering the Bases segment.

Drafted by the Pirates in the 7th round of the First-Year Player Draft in 2002, Capps became a reliever in '05 and advanced quickly through the minor league system making his debut in September of that year. A closer since 2007, Capps has 87 career saves and 20 for Washington this season.

Bob, Rob and Debbi will talk to Matt's teammates, coaches and family about his journey from Georgia to Pittsburg to the nation's capital.

Nats Xtra begins at 6:30 p.m. on MASN 2 and MASN 2 HD.
