Last Thursday, country singer Jason Aldean announced that his hunting buddy, Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche, had joined Twitter.

On Saturday, LaRoche tweeted.

And as of this morning, LaRoche has more than 8,500 followers. He has followed 16 accounts, including Ryan Langerhans, and favorited one tweet — a link to a music video featuring former Atlanta Braves teammate Chipper Jones.
