The historic win at Nats Park provided DMV families special chance to bond

Nothing brings families together like October baseball.

WASHINGTON — The Nationals’ playoff run is giving families all across the DMV a chance to bond at the ballpark deep into October.

Jose Alves and his 13-year-old son, Ian, joined David Schick and his 13-year-old son, Sam, at Gallery Place metro station before the decisive NLCS Game 4 Tuesday night.

The father son duos had not seen each other in years since their boys both played baseball together in first grade.

Alves and Schick said the Nats’ playoff run presented a chance for them to spend time with their children in a unique, historical setting.

"We enjoy this time together as a family," Sam Shick said. "It’s the best."

Alves said he was sure the game would be something his son would remember forever.

"It’s great to be here," Alves said. “I think it’s a historic moment."
