New Virtual Draft Format
September 4-9, 2020

Join Nationals Philanthropies for the fifth annual Nationals Fantasy Football Showdown draft event in support of our signature program. Formerly Scherzer Showdown, the event takes on a new virtual format with drafts taking place before the football season officially kicks off. All proceeds benefit the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy, which uses baseball and softball as vehicles to foster positive character development, academic achievement, and improved health among youth from underserved communities in Washington, D.C.

Highlights include the opportunity to draft with fan favorite Nationals media personalities and former professional athletes, first round draft picks made by a Nationals player or coach, and new league winner perks including autographed memorabilia and a virtual NFL watch party with food and drink delivery.
