Hoyas vs. Nats

This is just plain awesome. CSTV reported today that the Georgetown baseball team will be playing an exhibition match against MBL's Washington Nationals on February 28 at the National's Spring Training home, Space Coast Park.

Washington, D.C. - For the first time in its 132-season history, the Georgetown University baseball team will take on a Major League Baseball franchise. On Thursday, February 28, the Hoyas will travel to the Washington Nationals Spring Training home, Space Coast Park, in Viera, Fla. for an exhibition contest, with first pitch slated for 11:30 a.m.

"Playing a professional team is something that we have been looking forward to for a few years now," senior Matt Harrigan said. "Not only is it a great training opportunity for our team, but it is also a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many of us. We can't wait until February 28th."

It will be the first home game of the spring season for the Nationals. They will begin major league competition on February 29 when they host the Florida Marlins.
Sounds like a good road trip to me.
