This Friday, Washington D.C. native and undefeated Welterweight sensation, Dusty Hernandez-Harrison, will throw out the first pitch for the National League East Champions, Washington Nationals. The 1:00pm game, the first of a double header for the Nationals, kicks off the final home series for the Nats before the playoffs begin.
WBC Youth Welterweight World Champion, Hernandez-Harrison (23-0, 12 KO’s), grew up just on the other side of the bridge from where National’s Park stands today. At just 20 years old, Hernandez-Harrison relates to the dedication and passion that it takes in the aspirations of winning a World Championship.
"I am honored to be stepping on the same field as the Nationals' players because I know what their success means to all of us in the community," said Dusty.
Hernandez-Harrison's promoter, Jeff Fried of All In Entertainment, noted that "an athlete's competitive side is always present contributing to their elite status in their sport: as Dusty is practicing which of his repertoire of pitches to throw!"
