Worth the wait

My hometown baseball club (that would be the Washington Nationals) had to wait a few days for its season opener following several positive COVID tests among players and staff members last week. What was supposed to be an April 1 open against the Mets became an April 6 opener against the Braves.

For Nats fans it was worth the wait.

MVP candidate (I’m calling this already) Juan Soto delivered the game-winning hit in the bottom of the ninth inning, a game started by Cy Young candidate (calling that one too) Max Scherzer.

All 12 people in Nats Park were ecstatic.

[Editor’s note: Official attendance for the game was 4,801.]

Still undefeated in ’21!
