A Day at Nationals Park With Avalon!

A Day at the Park with Avalon!


On June 9th, Avalon celebrated its annual Summer Fun Day with a trip behind the scenes at Nationals Park in Washington DC. With our storied tour guide Bob at the helm, we took a trip inside the stadium, with visits to the Red Porch Restaurant, Diamond Club Lounge, Shirley Povich Press Box, and Visitor’s Clubhouse. We even spent some time in the Nationals’ dugout! Avalon had a great time learning about the history of DC baseball, chatting with Bob, and coincidentally seeing star left-fielder Bryce Harper rehabbing a bit on the field – truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


We finished the day with a reception lunch at Bluejacket Brewery. From the delicious food to a fun atmosphere to great service, it was precisely the best way to celebrate. And, making the occasion even more special, we toasted our colleague Kate Cecchini Beaver, Senior Data Manager, on her tenth anniversary at Avalon. You know Kate best as the brain behind our Merlin Performance Reports; we love her not only for her impeccable data work, but also for her fun personality. Happy anniversary, Kate!
