Nats U (Baseball For Women) – Postponed!

NatsU has been indefinitely postponed due to the day/night doubleheader with the Braves caused by a previous rainout. Those who already bought tickets will be automatically refunded. No ETA on a makeup date is available at this time. Bummer! Wow, look, a Baseball 101 photo from RFK days! (Last year's Nats U at Nats Park) Anyway, Nats U is returning again for the annual day women get to take to the field, bullpen and batting cages for a day of instruction and ... Continue Reading

Walk-off hit by pitch

"Can you run? We'd like you to run in from center field to get the base," Oh my! My husband asked, "Both of us?" and the response was only one of us could go on the field, so he ever so sweetly allowed me to ... Continue Reading

Nats U 2011

Well, I'm embarrassed. I just discovered this post in my "drafts"! Life has been hectic, as usual. You'd think with my kids away at camp, I'd have more spare time to dedicate to the blog, but apparently not. Anyway, here are photos from the always exciting "Nats U" (Baseball for Women) event that took place in July. Women were treated to personal coaching on the field, in the batting cage and in the bullpen. May I say, I have a ... Continue Reading
