That A citizen of Washington will wait until fans return to Nationals Park before they officially commemorate their 2019 World Series title.
“I think as far as raising banners and ring distribution, we will wait for our fanbase to be involved in doing such things,” baseball operations president Mike Rizzo said on MLB Network Radio (h / t NBC Sports Washington Matt Weyrich). “Those are things that have to be done once in a lifetime and our fanbase is a big factor in helping us win that. They got it, they deserve to be involved in it and we will wait for them to do it. “
It is unclear when the Nationals will open their 2020 title defense, let alone take the field in their usual place.
The COVID-19 pandemic stopped the start of the season, and teams might have to compete behind the door to get things happening again at the right time.
ESPN Jeff Passan reports the MLB and MLB Players Association have discussed plans to hold matches in and around Phoenix in an empty stadium.
If things develop to the point where the team can play in their home city, the Nationals celebrate the World Series victory without the fans present who will definitely feel deflated. Waiting will be futile to raise the banner in style.
