WASHINGTON, D.C. - It’s that time of year again. Washington Nationals WinterFest is here. We’re on the scene in the Walter E. Washington Convention covering Day 2 of the 2016 version of the annual event. Check back often today for quotes and notes from the festivities.
We’ll have access to a number of Nationals including shortstop Trea Turner (we like the sound of that), Stephen Strasburg (wait till you see his beard), Chris Heisey, the great Tanner Roark, Jose Lobaton, Ryan Zimmerman and manager Dusty Baker (who might answer a few questions about the Danny Espinosa trade...).
As always it will be a quote-filled afternoon behind the scenes while Nationals fans interact with the players and participate in a number of kid-friendly activities out front.
If you want to follow along and enjoy things vicariously without leaving the comfort of your home to venture out into the cold, we’ve got you covered with all the info we can get out between interviews.
[ed. note - “It’s sometimes hard to get much out honestly, there is a steady parade of players throughout the day and lots of transcribing to do. But we’ll keep churning out content all week... okay for a couple weeks, probably by the time we’re done.”]
You can follow along on Federal Baseball’s Twitter feed below for the blurry pics we can capture during interviews and the dashed off quotes we can get together throughout the day.
Enjoy yourself if you’re here or follow along with FBB...
