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:
