Nats Home Opener 2015

Scherzer* 152

04/06/15 Max Scherzer (0-1), making the first start of his $210 million contract with the Washington Nationals, was in total control of the home opener versus the New York Mets with a no-hitter into the sixth. Costly errors though allowed the Mets to beat the Nats 3-1 on Monday afternoon. This despite a homer by Bryce Harper – his 3rd opening day homer in 3 years.

03/06/15 Ringling Bros Circus announced yesterday that they would be ending their century old tradition of using elephants in their shows by 2018. This will bring to an end the sight of elephants walking through the streets of Washington each time the circus came to town. It’s an event I’ve enjoyed photographing through the years
