#werthday

After a two and a half hour rain delay, the Nats beat the Cubs 10-3. YAY!
Then it was time to celebrate the Hobo!

This lady was ready to go with her sign. (autographed by Werth at some point in the past)

Patiently waiting.

Standing O!

“You go, Dan Kolko.”

Newest addition to the park.

A gift from the players for the Hobo’s retirement, presented by Ryan Zimmerman.

Retirement suits him.

Ted and Mark Lerner (father and son, they own the team) presented him with a literal ring of honor.

It looked like a tryhard world series ring. Joke’s on them because Werth has one of those. (with the Phillies in 2008)

Seriously though, it was a nice gesture, and the first of it’s kind.

Peroud, yet humble after watching vids of former teammates sending their best.

Speech!

“Harper, you’re an idiot.”

Cheers from the dugout.

The Hobo was gracious and humorous and emotional. He thanked his family, his wife and two sons, and got choked up when he thanked his momma. He reflected on his seven years as a Washington National and his 22 year career. The fans and the team were fully supportive and did not hesitate to show it! I ‘wooooooooed’ till I was hoarse!

Jayson was honored to throw the first pitch, caught by his son, Jackson.

Last standing O of his career!

Hugs for Max.

Love to his team.

I love baseball.
Even though I’ve been frustrated this season, I still love baseball. I’ve loved it since I was a little girl.
Cal Ripken, Jr was my first baseball bae. I was hooked at the age of 10. Jayson Werth became my baseball bae in 2011. Now they’re both retired, but will always have a little bit of my baseball loving heart.
Goodbye, Hobo. I’ll miss your left field shenanigans.

Thank you, and goodnight.

P.S. Nats beat the Cubs 6-5 in the post-tribute second game!
Ain’t baseball great?

    But I love the energy you bring to me when you write about it.
    Thank you Robynbird. đź’ž
