“We designated Wednesday, October 10th as Go Nats! Day to celebrate our NL East Division Champions,” reports the Web site for the St. Peter School on Capitol Hill. “Considering the fact that we are one of the closest schools to the stadium and that we also happen to have lots of Nats fans, we had a free dress day! The students, faculty, and staff were encouraged to wear Nats gear or something red.”

“Prayers can’t hurt!” noted the president of the Pastor Principal Advisory Board in an e-mail to The Post.
