When the Washington Nationals traded to acquire Oakland A’s closer Sean Doolittle back on July 16th, it set up a #UVABase reunion with his former #UVABase teammate, Nats first baseman Ryan Zimmerman. The collection of Hoos at Nats Park got even bigger over the weekend when the Colorado Rockies came to town, adding Mark Reynolds to the mix. Coach O’Connor met up with the former Hoos before the series began on Friday evening. Last week, members of the Charlottesville media, including our own Jeff White, also had the opportunity to speak with Zimmerman and Doolittle about being reunited.
