DC Sports Huddle: Remembering the Ryan Zimmerman era in Washington

For the first time in Washington Nationals history, there will be a season without Ryan Zimmerman on the roster.

“Mr. National” announced his retirement Tuesday after 17 years as the face of baseball’s return to Washington and the WTOP Sports team reflects on the impact “Employee No. 11” had on the Nats and the so-called “DMV” area.

Also inside the D.C. Sports Huddle presented by BetMGM: What can Wizards fans expect from the Kristaps Porzingis trade? What’s the takeaway from the Los Angeles Rams’ victory in Super Bowl LVI? And you don’t want to miss Dave’s rant on why soccer should be considered one of the major sports in the North American sports landscape. (This is where we mention he’s also the TV voice of D.C. United.)

WTOP Senior Sports Director Dave Johnson, Sports Director George Wallace, Senior Content Producer Rob Woodfork and fellow sports anchor Dave Preston talk about it.
