For the first time in what felt like weeks, it wasn’t brutally hot come dusk, making it an absolutely perfect night for baseball. Even though a packed house had to deal with “How the Grinch Stole Strasmas” after Stephen Strasburg was scratched from his start, many stayed around to catch an impressive home performance from the Nationals. Take a look at this picture (bigger size after the jump, and full size here; I highly recommend clicking through to see the detail Christopher caught). It’s a near poster-esque view of last night’s crowd from Nationals Park, and a reminder that baseball is a beautiful thing.
