Rep. Steve Scalise Throws Out First Pitch at Nats Playoff Opener

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, injured in June in a shooting in my hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 1 of the NL Division Series between the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs on Friday night. The Louisiana Congressman returned to Congress last week.

What a great moment and what a great pitch!

Jayson Werth Tribute video from the Washington Nationals

Washington Nationals Honor Jayson Werth with Video Tribute

The Washington Nationals were widely criticized in 2011 when they signed Jayson Werth to a 7-year, $126 million dollar deal.

2017 may be Jayson’s last season with the team. In response to that, the Nationals played this awesome video tribute to Jayson at today’s last game of the season at Nationals Park.

Say what you want about Jayson Werth but, he mentored the young players like Bryce Harper and brought a winning attitude to the organization.
