Nationals Gather Virtually to Rewatch World Series Game 7 on Zoom

By 106.7 The Fan

The Nationals got the band back together to rewatch Game 7 of the 2019 World Series while raising over $200,000 for Ryan Zimmerman's Pros For Heroes, a coalition of athletes looking to make a difference for healthcare workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.

"Juan, I gotchu," Dozier said, breaking out the trash can on the Zoom and rapping it two times with a spatula, causing Sean Doolittle to cover his head with his shirt in embarrassment.

"Take his camera away," Trea Turner shouted.

"No, it's fine," Zimmerman said. "He's on the Padres. So the Padres GM will be getting calls tomorrow. (Nats GM Mike Rizzo) won't even have to get called, so it's good."

"Juan, you took the first pitch, you did your shimmy, and then you said something to Chirinos," Zimmerman prompted. "What did you say to Chirinos?"

"When," asked Soto. "Right there?"

"Eighth inning, 1-0. It looked like it was a changeup, maybe," said Zimmerman. "You took it and then you proceeded to absolutely rip a fastball to right field. What did you say to Chirinos before that?"

"He just told me, 'Hey, you passed it,'" Soto recalled. "And I'm like, 'No? Watchu mean?' I'd been talking to him the whole game. I'm trying to get on his mind."

"Yeah? You like to get into his head," Zimmerman asked. 

"Yeah. He's trying. He's like, 'Oh, you don't do that. Oh, you did bah-bah-bah-bah,'" Soto said. "I said throw the changeup again. And he threw the fastball. What an idiot."
