And so, after an inexplicable 2-year hiatus, the Nationals will be making like a real, live, MLB team and holding a Winter fan fest this year. Good deal. Tickets will be available online starting at 10:00 AM Thursday, December 6, 2012 at nationals.com/natsfest. A person who knows stuff and is usually right told us the Nationals may or may not be looking to bring back former players for the event (hint: 2005, not 2008, though we're not sure if any players have accepted).

Here's the official release from the Nats from earlier on Monday: Following the most memorable season in team history, the Washington Nationals invite fans across the region to reignite their Natitude for 2013 at NatsFest, taking place for the first time ever at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, January 26, 2013.The fun-filled baseball festival will be held at the spacious Convention...
