RMNB Interview Series: Adam Eaton talks World Series run, Nationals’ championship celebration at Capitals game
During the coronavirus pandemic, I’ve been considering how I can be more of the new-media journalist I want to be and use the vast connections I’ve created over the last decade. So, with Peter’s help, I’ve created the RMNB Interview Series. Imagine a long, in-depth interview that is supplemental to the RMNB Podcast (which Peter and I will still do). It will cover topics people really care about or may not know they cared about.
My first guest is a baseball player: Nationals’ World Series champion Adam Eaton. Eaton lives in Michigan and is a huge hockey and Washington Capitals fan.
During our chat, Adam takes us behind-the-scenes of the Capitals’ Stanley Cup celebration at Nationals Park in 2018, the Nats’ World Series run, the team’s postgame celebrations (and how they compared to the Caps’), catching Ovi’s first pitch in the playoffs, and the Nats’ World Series celebration at Capital One Arena. Eaton also goes in-depth on the how and the why of the shirtless Zamboni incident and reveals never-before-known details about that night. The interview, which was only supposed to last 30-45 minutes goes over 90.
