    Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki wore a “Make America Great Again” hat Monday during the team’s visit to the White House to celebrate their 2019 World Series title. Just as Trump called the catcher to the podium, Suzuki paused briefly to put on the president’s now famous red campaign hat. As soon as the 36-year-old catcher popped the hat on his head, the president was visibly shocked and delighted. “I love you all!” Suzuki said after stepping up to the mic. “Thank you!” “What a job he did, I didn’t know that was going to happen,” Trump said of the...

    The World Series champion Washington Nationals visited the White House Monday, and two players in particular showed their support for President Trump. Catcher Kurt Suzuki sported a MAGA hat while addressing the crowd. Trump had just propped him up for his solo home run in Game two, the first home run ever hit by a Hawaiian-born player in World Series history, to which Suzuki responded, “I love you all.” First baseman Ryan Zimmerman, the first player ever drafted by the Nationals after the franchise relocated from Montreal, called the visit “stuff you dream about.” “To see all the fans show...

    Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki donned a "Make America Great Again" hat during the team's visit to the White House on Monday to celebrate its World Series victory. He also got a big hug from President Trump while wearing the red "MAGA" baseball cap as he put his arms up to acknowledge the crowd. Trump put his hands on Suzuki's shoulders and hugged him from behind. “I love you all,” Suzuki told the crowd. “I love you all. Thank you.” “What a job he did. I didn’t know that was going to happen,” Trump said to laughter in the crowd....

    When the Washington Nationals made it to the World Series, I wrote that hardly a man is now alive who remembers the last time a Washington baseball team got that far. The year was 1933. Now, the Nationals have won the World Series. I suspect that nary a man is now alive who remembers the last time Washington experienced ultimate success in the sport. The year was 1924. Like this year’s Series, the one in 1924 went seven games. In the finale, Walter Johnson, who had lost two games as a starter, pitched four innings of relief and got the...

    WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg brought the Nationals to the cusp of clinching the National League East on Sunday afternoon by tossing eight shutout innings in Washington's 3-2 victory over the Phillies at Nationals Park, and the Braves' win over the Marlins hours later pushed Washington into the postseason as the division winner. After the final out was made in Washington, some fans remained in their seats to watch the conclusion of the game in Atlanta on the scoreboard, waiting to see if a celebration was forthcoming. A few Nationals went to the dugout at times to watch, but the team...

As a precaution, police scanned the workers' garbage truck for radioactivity and got a reading high enough to prompt them to evacuate the 114th Precinct, but the box and the...

    Investigators are trying to determine whether a San Diego sailor passed Navy secrets about security weaknesses and warship movements to a British man accused of having terrorist links, according to court documents unsealed yesterday. E-mail messages from the unnamed sailor, sent in late 2000 and 2001 before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, were found in December in computer files belonging to Babar Ahmad, who was detained Wednesday in London, according to the 31-page arrest affidavit. The computer files contained details about security arrangements and movements of the San Diego-based Constellation carrier battle group, which included the destroyer Benfold, on which...

    CROMWELL, Conn. -- A Connecticut nuclear engineer is under investigation in a federal terrorism probe, but denies allegations he offered support to a militant Islamic Web site and said he's being targeted because he is Muslim. Syed R. Maswood, 41, confirmed that he is the unnamed Connecticut resident mentioned last week in a federal affidavit charging a British national with supporting terrorism. Federal agents raided Maswood's home March 17, seizing computer equipment and financial records, he said. Investigators discovered his e-mail address among files used to maintain a Web site that funneled money and equipment to terrorists, according to the...

Their two most prominent players, outfielder Adam Dunn and third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, had the team name misspelled on the front of their uniforms. Nationals was misspelled "N-A-T-I-N-A-L-S" on both players' jerseys

    Just when you thought your 1-10 Washington Nationals couldn't grow any more absurd comes some news that goes beyond the ridiculous and into the territory of the just plain laughable. On Saturday, Washington outfielder Elijah Dukes was benched, fined $500 and threatened with a demotion to the minor leagues after he showed up to the park a mere five minutes after the team's usual reporting time.

    To their everlasting horror, the global-warming alarmists have discovered that ExxonMobil advertises with the Washington Nationals. This act of free enterprise cannot go unpunished, so the global-warming alarmists have initiated a campaign to educate the Lerner family and baseball-supporting public in the hope the Nationals will end their relationship with ExxonMobil. It is unclear whether the global-warming alarmists walked to the ballpark from their homes, took mass transportation or drove there in an automobile. That, of course, is often the rub with the global-warming zealots. They talk a good game if it concerns you, your neighbor and the person down...

    WASHINGTON - Pope Benedict XVI praised America as a land of opportunity and hope Thursday as he celebrated the first public Mass of his U.S. pilgrimage, but he lamented that the nation's promise fell short for Indians and blacks. But, he said, hope for the future "is very much a part of the American character." Tens of thousands of worshippers filled Washington Nationals stadium on a clear spring day and cheered Benedict as he arrived in a white popemobile, standing in the back and waving. A crowd of 46,000 was expected, and the demand for tickets doubled the supply, organizers...

    WASHINGTON - President Bush had enough to worry about — like not flubbing the first pitch in front of a crowd that might not exactly be his biggest fans anyway. So before the game, when a couple of Atlanta Braves gave him a team jersey and suggested he wear it to throw out the first pitch at Nationals Park, Bush laughed. Uh, no thanks, guys. Might as well put on a sign that says "Boo me." "I'm not going to give them any excuses," Bush said of the 40,000-plus people gathered for the opening of Washington's gleaming baseball stadium. Over...
