Nationals World Series Parade

In Baseball by RUNINdc

The 2019 Washington Nationals celebrated their World Series Championship with hundreds of thousands of exuberant fans decked out in red and curly W’s, arms extended in a chomping motion.

At 2 pm, after an F-16 flyover, the parade kicked off on Constitution Ave near the Washington Monument and ended on 3rd and Pennsylvania with a huge rally led by Owner Ted Lerner and General Manager Mike Rizzo.

There was a lot of talent on parade with Manager Davey Martinez, Howie Kendrick, Juan Soto, Max Scherzer, Anthony Rendon, Stephen Strasburg and long-time Nationals Ryan Zimmerman.

Fans rushed to get a better view of the parade, climbing whatever they could hop on to get a better view of the buses and players, staff and family members.

Martinez said that fans were shouting at him: “‘Your heart, Davey; your heart, Davey!’ …. All this has cured my heart.” 

Ted Lerner told the crowd that even though it took 95 years, “this was worth the wait.”
