Everyone knows by now, unless you’ve been living under a rock, the Washington Nationals have officially made it to the World Series. They will play for the title against the winner of the ALCS between Houston Astros and New York Yankees.
Early Wednesday morning, many Capitals players, including TJ Oshie, Tom Wilson, and John Carlson, tweeted out congratulations to their favorite local baseball team on Twitter.

The radio voice of the Capitals, John Walton, was even at the game himself.
Despite being a member of the Panthers organization, former Capital Brett Connolly sent out a shoutout to the Nats as well.
Good luck to the @Nationals in the World Series! Well deserved! #DC
