Nats Hilariously Double Book First Pitch on 106.7 The Fan Night, Screw Over Radio Stud Chad Dukes

It’s August. The Nats are openly tanking. It’s a Wednesday. A team has to do what it can to drive fans to the ballpark.

The Nats opted for a double promotion (not super unusual) and had both “Swim Night” and “106.7 The Fan Night” scheduled.

106.7 is the Flagship radio station for Nats baseball, and one of the local afternoon hosts Chad Dukes has been entertainingly discussing his first pitch for the past few days.

Funny tweet, good bit, and great Rich Garces reference.

The only problem was there happens to be a different athlete in the house tonight…

Chad took the initial news in stride, great tweet, all is well.

THEN things took a turn for the worse…

Dukes opened his show today at 2 PM with an epic rant regarding the pitch (pun) for him to throw out the ball alongside Katie Ledecky. A 5-Time Olympic Gold Medalist AND a midday radio host with sub named after him at Jerry’s Subs & Pizza.

Dukes was understandably upset and against the idea of being juxtaposed alongside Ledecky.
