To start the season off right, we wanted to give away a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to a lucky Nationals fan.
By the time the contest wrapped up, we selected early frontrunner Will as our winner. The 13-year-old Nats fan will take the mound during the home opener, having the same honor as many famous names, such as President Barack Obama and Wizards’ point guard John Wall.
If you’re at the park this Saturday, be sure to cheer on Will as he kicks off the game by throwing the ceremonial first pitch.
We’re expecting a strike down the middle, Will. No pressure!
