Sunday was Mother’s Day which, for some of the Nats players, meant pink-tinted gear. (Adam LaRoche was not permitted to use his pink bat. James Wagner has the details here.) It also meant public displays of mom affection, and Ian Desmond wins the award for this heartfelt tweet to his wife. Also, for his restraint in not using #steak.
Chelsey, I fall more in love with you everyday. You are an unbelievable wife and mother. Thank you for all you do. Happy Mothers Day xo.
