Over the weekend, the Nationals put on the Washington Capitals game at Citizens Bank Park during batting practice.
This clearly was not enough hockey for Nats centerfielder Adam Eaton, who appears to have taken his son Brayden to Caps practice on Tuesday.

Eaton posted a photo of his adorable son on Instagram. Tiny Brayden poked his head through one of the life-size hockey player cut-outs at the Arlington Ice Rink.
Eaton, the Nats new centerfielder, joined the team in December after a trade with the White Sox. He is a notorious huge hockey fan, showing love to both the Detroit Red Wings and Michigan State Spartans while home in Michigan during the off-season.

In March, Eaton filled out a player survey for the Nationals and answered “hockey” when asked what his favorite sport to watch was other than baseball.

Eaton also posted a photo of himself wearing an AHL Chicago Steel hat. Friend of the blog @maxduchaine asked Eaton if he would ever attend a Caps game.
@AdamSpankyEaton Nice hat! Can we get you to a @Capitals game soon?

Eaton replied affirmatively.
I'd love to see them in action! https://t.co/FK3gfHDKQO

Eaton has started the season strong with 9 hits in 8 games, including a homerun and four RBIs.
Hopefully attending practice at Kettler is just the beginning for the family.
