Washington Nationals Honor

the U.S. Foreign Service

On September 30, AFSA

and the Washington Nation-

als Major League Baseball

team hosted the first Foreign

Service Night at Nationals

Park, as part of AFSA’s new

50 state strategic outeach

initiative, supported by the

Fund for American Diplomacy.

More than 500

members of the For-

eign Service and their

families attended to

see the Washington

Nationals play the

Miami Marlins. Fresh

from their success

in the MLB National

League East Division,

the Nats played the

Marlins for home-

field advantage.

Before the game,

a group of AFSA members

took to the field to be recog-

nized as part of the Nation-

als’ Spirit Awards. AFSA

Governing Board members

Josh Glazeroff and Lawrence

Casselle, AFSA Editorial

Board Chair Beth Payne and

Ambassador (ret.) Marc

Grossman were honored

for their service at the brief

ceremony.

Following a rain delay,

AFSA President Ambassador

Barbara Stephenson threw

out the ceremonial first pitch

of the game. The

atmosphere in the

sections reserved

for Foreign Service

members was col-

legial, with many

people taking the

opportunity to catch

up with friends and

former colleagues.

AFSA would

like to thank the

Washington Nation-

als team for helping

to make this event

possible.
