“I love how all the D.C. teams support each other. I’m excited to go out there and be cheering them on,” said Delle Donne, the WNBA MVP. “There’s a lot of magic going on in the city right now.”
Delle Donne and her teammates, along with General Manager/Coach Mike Thibault, were honored on the field shortly before first pitch. They watched a video tribute, and Delle Donne received an ovation as she tossed the first pitch.
“It’s been really cool doing our little victory tour,” she said. “It has certainly sunk in. And it feels so good.”
