I had fun looking up some of my favorite old Spring Training photos this week, so I decided to post two more.
In this one from March 6, 2005, Washington, D.C. Mayor Anthony A. Williams, in the yellow shirt, watches a Washington Nationals game directly behind Manager Frank Robinson, left foreground. Williams attended his first Nationals Spring Training game at Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Fla.
I covered the opening series, the first time the Nationals ever took the field for a game.

Davis is the Nats’ player of the year

G. Richard Pfitzner Stadium in Woodbridge, Va., used to be my “home” field when we lived in northern Virginia. I shot their card set for a couple of years and worked several games there. The blue walls on the grandstand make a good, clean backdrop for photos, and I always enjoy shooting there. I photographed Leonard Davis last June 20 on a trip back north. Davis was the Nats Minor League player of the year for 2008.
It’s always good to go back there and see Dottie and Lamar Boone, the Booster Club folks. I’ll probably be back there again in 2009.
This post is for Aaron, the “districtboy” on MLBlogs, who was kind enough to leave me a comment and make a special request for a Nationals player.
