The Washington Nationals lost to the Atlanta Braves on Sunday afternoon, but that wasn’t the major storyline from the game.
Mike Rizzo, who signed a three-year extension yesterday, was watching the Nationals alone in a third-level suite. In the seventh inning, after a questionable strike call, Rizzo reacted out loud, apparently loud enough to be heard on field level. Umpire Joe West noticed Rizzo and then ejected him for not wearing a mask.
Yes, you read that correctly.
