The Scouting Report
As a club with alumni stars that went on to become major-league MVPs, the Washington Nationals' Class-A affiliate look to contend for another title in the confines of Pfitzner Stadium; they’re hoping to hoist the Mills Cup once again, as was done back in 2010 as the champions of the Carolina League. Wins in the Nationals’ season-opening series against the Lynchburg Hillcats would give the squad early bragging rights against a team that came away with 12 wins in their 21 meetings last season.
Inside The Pfitz, sizzling fastballs and skyscraping homers jettison across the field as fans catch views from up-close reserved seats. Many games include additional promotions, in which fireworks may light up the skyline or kids can charge onto the field to run the bases and stand in the same hallowed spot as their favorite umpire.
Though the team has undergone seven name changes since its inception in 1978, the Potomac Nationals fans are unwavering, filling the stands at Pfitzner Stadium in hopes of catching a major league legend in action. The club has served as the starting point for several superstars who have gone on to receive big-league plaudits such as Rookie of the Year titles, Gold Gloves, and league MVP awards. The Nationals have taken home Carolina League titles in 1982, 1989, 2008, and 2010 and are making plans to take home a Milky Way League title in 2158.
