A week ago, Caps fan Katie Ledecky returned to the United States to a hero’s welcome. The legendary swimmer won four gold medals, destroyed her own world record in the 400-meter freestyle, and broke the Olympic record in the 800-meter freestyle at the Rio Olympics.
The Bethesda native returned to the DC area this weekend, spending some time at Children’s National Hospital. A few hours ago, the Nationals announced that Ledecky will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Nats/Orioles game.

She seems excited.
You should definitely go and give her a loud, never-ending standing ovation.
As of 5:30pm Tuesday afternoon, tickets are still available on the Nationals website and start at $23 each.
Ledecky also threw out the first pitch at a Nats game in 2014 and that’s totally a strike.
Ted, I beg you, please get her to another Capitals game this year.
