While the outcome from the Nationals' World Series homestand was not what DC baseball fans wanted, the outpouring of support for the team around the region has been well-documented over the last three days.
But just how far does the fanbase stretch? Late last week, the Stephen S. Fuller Institute at George Mason University attempted to answer that question.
Using data provided by SeatGeek and prefacing their findings with appropriate caveats, the Institute found that the Nats fan-base could stretch pretty far and wide.
"Of the 16.6 million living in the Nats fan-base area, 9.6 million were born in one of these three states or the District of Columbia. An additional 2.4 million had lived in their home for more than 10 years," the post stated. "These 12.0 million people have strong ties to the Nats fan-base area and can claim longer-term loyalty to the Nats."
A twelve-million strong fan-base admittedly seems a bit on the high side, but we'll need all the help we can get on Tuesday and Wednesday.
