Sports Illustrated posted the cover of their June issue on Facebook today. Thanks to Federal Baseball for pointing this out, but on the top right-hand corner of this issue (hitting stands tomorrow) the headline reads as it does in this post.

(Click here to see the SI cover.)

While we’re still a ways away from seeing Bryce Harper at Nationals Park, young Strasburg will be making his Major League debut (pending weather/extenuating circumstances) on June 8.

Nice to see DC getting some MLB street cred in the sports community.

I mean heck, the Nationals were number one on StubHub thanks to the big June 8 announcement!

Way to start looking like a real baseball town, DC. You’re getting really into this. I like the enthusiasm. Keep it up.

Rachel moved to DC in the fall of 2005 to study Journalism and Music at American University. When she’s not keeping up with the latest Major League Baseball news, she works on making music as an accomplished singer-songwriter and was even a featured performer/speaker at TEDxDupont Circle in 2012. Rachel has also contributed to The Washington Examiner and MASN Sports’ Nationals Buzz as a guest blogger. See why she loves DC. E-Mail:

  2. I am going to have to say Stasburg, It is amazing what his 100-mile an hour fastball and a full repertoire of pitches can do for ticket sales. I could not see him when he played the Mud Hens. But, I will definitely look for him in the majors.
