A whole host of Nationals news coming in this afternoon...
First, the caravan kicks off tomorrow with Danny Espinosa, Drew Storen, Ryan Speier, Jim Riggleman and our very own Rob Dibble.
Throughout the day, the group will visit the Southwest Health Center in DC, Hard Times Cafe in Arlington and Build a Bear in Tyson's Corner. Check Nats Buzz all week for updates, interviews, pictures, etc. I'll do my best to keep you updated on Twitter (@khudak11), but also make sure to follow @DrewStoren, @RDibs49 and @masnNATS for plenty of caravan news.
The Nationals also announced that the Dave Matthews Band will perform at Nationals Park on July 23. Tickets go on sale on February 26 at 10:00 a.m. online at tickets.com. Zac Brown Band will open the show.
Grammy winner Matthews described Nationals Park as "...the newest and most exciting outdoor venue in the DC market." The Dave Matthews Band began in the early 90's in nearby Charlottesville, VA.
Last but not least, if you can't make it to the caravan events tomorrow, be sure to chat online with Mark Lerner at 1 p.m. on nationals.com. He'll take your burning questions about the franchise. Manager Jim Riggleman will also host a chat on Friday morning.
