The Washington Nationals will continue to the Washington Capitals’ championship tradition of swimming in fountains, according to right fielder Adam Eaton.
Wednesday, after the Nationals won the World Series, TJ Oshie posted a map with various locations of fountains in Washington DC.
What an impressive run by these @Nationals. You could tell they had something special in that clubhouse. Congrats fellas! According to yelp here’s some fountains if you want to keep the tradition alive. #WorldChampions #FightFinished pic.twitter.com/kkcpmMi8bW

Adam Eaton was told about Oshie’s tweet in the Nationals’ locker room while celebrating and here’s what he had to say.

“YES!! Aw, my boy, Oshie. Thank you!” Eaton said. “Direct message me or we’ll get ahold of each other because I don’t know if we’ll be able to do it as well because baseball guys are not hockey guys. Those guys are on a different level than we are. But we’re going to try.”
Thursday, after Capitals practice, Oshie re-affirmed that he was very serious about this.
Oshie apologized today, saying if he left any fountains out then he’s sorry. It’s just according to Yelp, he said. And his phone was dying from texting everyone about the Nats.
Though he is very serious about the Nats needing to find the fountains. https://t.co/k8d3NYom4q

The Nationals championship parade is expected to be held on Saturday.
Not sure if this is out there yet: Mark Lerner says he expects the Nationals parade to be Saturday afternoon.

“I will be hammered at the parade. You just wait,” Eaton said before adding his one wish. “I just hope I can stay on the float.”

The Nationals tweeted the Capitals, seeming to indicate they have something planned.
💬 All good fam. I mean, those fountains aren't gonna swim in themselves.

Here’s a perfect shirt they could wear for the occasion.
