College Rivalry Day – Nationals vs. Mets
June 29, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets
College Rivalry Day – Virginia vs. Virginia Tech
The Washington Nationals are hosting the 2nd Annual College Rivalry Day as they take on the New York Mets. Join the UVA Club of Washington as we cheer on former UVA baseball star Ryan Zimmerman, Racing President Mr. Jefferson, and our Washington Nationals!
The game day will incorporate several elements of the UVA-VT rivalry. Last year, former UVA basketball player Justin Anderson and former VT football player Darryl Tapp threw out first pitches, Cavman & Hokie Bird and our cheerleaders appeared at the game, the Nats played the school fight songs, UVA & VT alumni sang the National Anthem and God Bless America, concessions stands served UVA & VT themed food (resembling the Gus Burger and turkey leg), and Racing President Tom won the Presidents Race!
