The Harrisburg connection, going strong with the Nationals. The roster, littered with former Senators. They have nothing but high praise, for their time in the capital city of PA. Steve Lombardozzi, Nationals Infielder says, "Its awesome, its a great place to play, probably one of the best parks in the Eastern League. The atmsophere is awesome." Adds Jordan Zimmerman, Nationals Pitcher, "It was awesome, loved the city, loved the ballpark. It was great."
The Eastern League skill level, also great. Prepping these guys, for the big stage, in the majors. Danny Espinosa, Nationals Infielder says, "For me, double A out of all the leagues, high double a, triple a I played in was definitely the hardest. Thats where the most talent is. Every pen in double a, everyone is throwing 95. Thats where you really get a true taste what you can really do with guys coming late into the game."
The talent that once took the field on City Island no say they are ready to contend for a division title. Espinosa.. "The Phillies are very good, they have a couple injuries but they will find their way just like last year they found a way to win but there's no reason why we can't win the East, we have way too much talent on this team."
Lombardozzi, "Everybody in this clubhouse is wanting to win and thats our goal so we want to prove everybody wrong."
