Four Nationals Players Swing by Four Neighborhood Libraries

Published on Monday, July 21, 2014
Four members of the Washington Nationals team took a break from the diamond last Saturday, July 19 to visit four neighborhood libraries.
The Anacostia, Deanwood, Mount Pleasant, and Tenley-Friendship Libraries hosted ballplayers Denard Span, Drew Storen, and Scott Hairston along with manager Matt Williams for an afternoon or fun and reading. Each Nationals member read one of their favorite baseball-themed stories to a crowd of excited youngsters and parents, then took some time to answer a few questions about reading and life in the big leagues. Check out a few pictures from the events below:

A father's rights are essentially the same as a mother's but sometimes men have difficulty exercising all their parental rights.

Disputes over paternity, child support and custody can interfere with a dad's ability to play a full role in his children's life.

Family law attorneys from Neighborhood Legal Services Program will explain how to file for custody or visitation, when to seek to modify a child support order and how to establish paternity in the District of Columbia. You will also learn about the free, legal help available to low-income dads who need help with family law cases in the District of Columbia.
