Sharing some stories with our friends at MASN

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been invited to be part of’s season-long initiative to welcome guest bloggers and allow them to post stories to MASN’s Nats Buzz site.

My first story was titled: You never know what will happen at a game.

Like most Washington Nationals fans, I also get a little frustrated when the Nats struggle to win ballgames. I actually have friends that don’t quite understand why I keep renewing my season tickets year after year. When they ask me why I keep doing it, I answer quickly: I do it because you never know when you may witness a little bit of D.C. baseball history. Click here to read the rest of the story at MASN.

My second story was posted last week and is titled: Can Morse stay in “Beast Mode” long enough to win batting title?

The Washington Nationals‘ first baseman Michael Morse, is putting up some offensive numbers Washington baseball fans haven’t seen in nearly a half century. The 29-year-old Morse has a legitimate shot at winning the 2011 National League batting title. Click here to read the rest of the story at MASN.

My third story was posted this morning and it is titled: Bullet Ben’s cup of coffee with the Washington Senators

What makes this story so different than any of my other stories is the way I learned about Benson. It happened a little less than two years ago when I received an e-mail from a person who wrote the following message to me:

“Mark, I have spent the last 20 years of my life trying to find more information out about my grandfather’s career. He played with the Senators in 1934; he got a call up in August of that year, and pitched in two games. His name is Allen “Bullet Ben” Benson. Do you have any info on this subject??” Click here to read the rest of the story at MASN.
