Four More Years with Washington!!!

WOODBRIDGE, VA - The Washington Nationals today announced that they have signed a four-year extension to their Player Development Contract (PDC) with the Potomac Nationals of the Single-A Carolina League. Washington President Stan Kasten made the announcement along with Potomac Chairman and CEO Art Silber.

?We are excited to extend our working relationship with the Potomac Nationals for four more years,? said Kasten. ?The proximity of their facility to Washington has been a great asset to our organization as it pertains to players on rehabilitation assignments and for workouts. We have enjoyed a great relationship with the Potomac ownership and are looking forward to working together in the future.?

?The relationship with Washington has been the fulfillment of a long term dream,? Silber said. ?It gives our fans the ability to know that we have a long term commitment with our home town Major League team. We are excited with the commitment that new ownership has made to player development, so that our fans will continue to see some of the greatest players in Major League history at the Minor League level.?

Potomac joined the Carolina League in 1978 and currently play in 6,000-seat Pfitzner Stadium, which is located 30 miles from Washington. Potomac began its affiliation with Washington in 2005. Over the last two years, Potomac has had several Washington players including Jose Vidro, John Patterson, Jose Guillen and Brian Schneider on rehab assignments.

Excellent news.  The working relationship really was visible this season, and is good for both franchises.  It's a lot of fun to see players you know have a shot at the daddy Nats, as well as current Nats on rehab.  

Nats are giving the impression of having a plan and executing.  I'm excited to see what the free agent signing period will bring, as well.
