WASHINGTON — Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon had the time of his life at the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy on Friday morning.
There he was, playing pickup baseball with a bunch of scholar athletes. Rendon played on the field for the most part, helping the kids field ground balls and catch fly balls.
For Rendon, playing with the kids was unreal. It was little over a decade ago when he was playing pickup games as a kid in Houston. Now he sees some of the kids at the Academy wearing Rendon jerseys.
