Denard Span, the Washington Nationals’ star center fielder and leadoff hitter, has a busy schedule in the coming months, especially if the Nats make a deep playoff push.
But one thing on his to do list? A tour of the Capitol.
He’s been to the White House but he has not had a chance to peer inside at the people’s Congress. And he even expressed interest at doing so if given the opportunity.
“There’s so much to see here. I don’t know where to begin. They need to have a chronological order to the city. Hoping to have enough time here to do that,” he said. “I see myself coming back [to D.C.] during the offseason.”
Span plays for D.C., lives in Crystal City, Va., and calls Tampa, Fla., his home. Perhaps there is a congressional office out there willing to host him on a Capitol tour?
