Found November 03, 2012 on Nationals Enquirer:
So the Arizona Fall League's Rising Stars Game is tonight (box here). Brian Goodwin, the Nationals OF prospect who just might keep the Nats from going after FA Michael Bourne, hit a solo home run to lead off the first inning for the AFL East squad. (We'll see what Scott Boras has to say about that.) Goodwin's solo shot came thisclose to hitting a woman and her kid who were happily sititng on a blanket on the grassy hill behind the right field fence. See helpful yellow arrow in the screencap above. Earlier today, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post had an overview of the Nats prospects in the AFL this season. A scout in that story had this to say about the timing of Goodwin's arrival in D.C.: "It’s at least a year. And I think that’s what [the Nationals] expect, too."
