GROUND CREW MEMORIES: No matter how the current season turns out for the Washington Nationals, Tyler Spicer still has great memories from the pro baseball team’s past two campaigns.
The Washington-Lee (now Washington-Liberty) HIgh School graduate and current college student was a member of the Nationals’ grounds crew, landing the part-time job in 2017. Spicer then worked the 2018 Major League All-Star game at Nationals Park, along with 2019 World Series games.
“Since I came aboard in 2017, the whole staff and organization has been nothing but great and generous to me, especially during the 2018 All-Star game week and 2019 World Series run. This has been the best job I could have asked for, where I have made countless memories.”
Spicer played Babe Ruth and Senior Babe Ruth baseball in Arlington, and later coached in the leagues. He also played baseball for W-L.
