It's the moment Washington Nationals fans have been waiting for.
Stephen Strasburg, the team's 21-year-old pitching phenom will take the mound tonight for the first time in the big leagues.
His fastball clocks in at over a 100 miles per hour.
His curve-ball appears to 'drop off the table,' as baseball scouts like to say.
And he's been nicknamed 'Jesus' by his teammates because that's the first thing batters say when they see his fastball.
Yes, there will be just a little pressure on Stephen Strasburg to live up to the hype.
To meet demand for tonight's game, and make some money off of it, the Nationals have decided to sell individual seats in the ballpark's plush suites. That's the first time the team has ever done that, but they'll set you back nearly 100 bucks for the cheapest of them. And a limited number of game day tickets, for a lot less, will be available at the ballpark as well, although those aren't likely to last very long.
