The Washington Nationals become the first MLB team from Washington to make it to the world series since 1933. In the Washington suburbs there is a high school named "Walter Johnson High School" named, obviously, for the great pitcher of that era. (Actually, his last year was 1927). Walter Johnson, the pitcher, threw 5900 innings and gave up fewer than 100 home runs in his career, against 3500+ strikeouts.
Anyway, if the Nationals can rest up while the AL teams battle it out, their pitching should be in good shape for the series. Maybe they will name a high school after Strasburg or Scherzer.
