Hi everyone,

I'm David and I live in Alexandria. I'm originally from SC and we moved here in 2012. As a SC kid, I grew up as a Braves/Dale Murphy fan. But as I got older, my interest in the Braves (and MLB in general) waned over the years. That is, until we moved to NOVA and now have a pro team in our backyard. It's great and we have really enjoyed adopting the Nats as our home team.   

Go Nats!

Welcome

Welcome! I grew up in SC (Aiken) and we became Braves fan by default because of WTBS. But like you, I’ve become a Nats fan since moving up here. It’s been great. Where in SC are you from?

Hey Blue - I grew up in York, and also lived in Charleston for ~ 13 years before moving here.

He'd take a short look around and blow.

He put up with the toxic negativity of the MLB board for years. Largely, I would guess, by sticking to his own thread and not reading too much of the other stuff. The LoD folks have nothing on the majority of the posts on the MLB forum.

Hey everyone,

Born and raised in the D.C. suburbs (Maryland side) and have been a fan since the inception in 2005. Father grew up in D.C. and goes back to the 1st Senators team so I had D.C. baseball in my blood even before the Nats got here. Been a wild ride for 13+ seasons and looking forward to many more to come.

Hi y'all.
Refugee from MLB. Live in Fairfax. STH since '05. I manage to get to about 20- 25 games a year and share the rest with partners. I try never to miss a pitch. If I'm not at Nats Park, I'm parked in front of the TV.

Where are you in Gaithersburg? I'm in the Goshen area, bordering on Laytonsville and Germantown.

Greetings, everyone.

I've been following the Nats since moving to the area since 2016. I watched a lot of games on TV but never made it out to games until recently. Found this forum recently and figured I'd join the conversation.

Welcome!

I'm curious - how do people come across this forum?  We want more people, I think, but because this is a low budget, part-time, non-business, I think people can only find it if you do a google search.  We don't have a twitter link or anything else like that, and we don't have an ad anywhere.

That was exactly the case. The pictures from the recent meet-and-greet event gave the impression this is a local group. I like that.

New here so still trying to learn to navigate around.  So many topics.  Trying to see area where comments are made on current days games.  Looks like this will be a worthwhile spot.

Look under Gameday Threads in the HOME menu and pick the game for that day.    GDT are usually posted an hour or so before game time.    Occasionally, they come up a few minutes after the game starts.
