MLB Network airs a video called “This is Our Game” before every network Showcase game. It is usually narrated by local fan or member of the community for each home team, but when it came time for the Nats to host, the honor went to Nats GM Mike Rizzo.
According to a source at the network, Rizzo was offered up by the Nats for his “blue-collar approach to the game and to the Nationals.”
The intro aired prior to the opening game of the Yankees series and included phrases such as “spacious skies” and “amber waves.” It’s all very American.
Rizzo did a respectable job, but I say we start campaigning for next year’s intro. Let Teddy Narrate.
