Denard Span, the one-time Minnesota Twin and shiny new Nationals center fielder, is sliding right into home here in the District, taking in historic sights and enjoying the proximity to power.

Just a day after his club’s 2-0 Opening Day win over the visiting Miami Marlins — game two of the home stand gets under way tonight at 7:05 p.m. — number “2” ventured over to the Library of Congress to get an eyeful of “16’s” personal belongings.

“Just leaving the library of congress. I saw what Lincoln had in this pocket the night he died,” Span tweeted out after inspecting Honest Abe's personal effects.
