It's a beautiful 60 degrees at the ballpark a little over three hours from the first pitch as we prepare for Game Three of the National League Division Series between the Washington Nationals and the St. Louis Cardinals. It should be in the upper 60s and sunny with low humidity around the 1:07 pitch scheduled first pitch. All around, it will be the perfect day for the first ever postseason game at Nationals Park.

The schedule for the day is going to go a little like this:

The Nats will start batting practice around 10:15 am with the Cardinals starting an hour after that. At 12:30 pm, we'll get a welcome followed by a Season Recap Video. Then, we'll get the introductions of the Cardinals, the Nats, and then the National Anthem sung by MSGT Ryan Carson of the US Air Force Band. Expect a flyover before the Ceremonial First Pitch, which will be thrown out by the first manager in Nationals history, Hall of Famer Frank Robinson. All this will lead up to the 1:07 pm first pitch. Get here early, and if you're reading this anywehre but the car or the Metro on the way to the ballpark, it's time to leave your home or office right now. You won't want to miss the festivities.

Here are the lineups for Game Three in this series, tied at one game a piece:
