Even when the players were just talking to reporters in the corner, two separate crowds gathered at each entry point, blocking the players in, not allowing for an easy escape.
For Denard Span, the hype was a little subdued. Mostly because Span was hidden away in Minnesota and many Nationals fans have never even seen the new Nats leadoff hitter before.
We followed Span as he went from a photograph station to talk with the media and were surprised that nobody was asking for autographs. A few fans turned their heads in a double-take, and only 4 fans decided to approach the centerfielder. Was it the clothes? Was it the newness? Whatever it was, it was fun. Take a look:
