On October 30, 2019, the Washington Nationals made history with their first World Series title.
It came against the Houston Astros, in Minute Maid Park, no less.
In case you didn’t know or forgot, it was also a thrilling Game 7.
The Nationals were wearing their blue jerseys that night, where Anthony Randon, Juan Soto, Howie Kendrick, Max Scherzer and other stars earned their first rings.
On Friday night, the Nationals will face the Astros.
Can you guess which uniform they will use?
We will help you.
“The nationals are wearing their blue jerseys tonight for the first time this season. The ones they wore when they won 7 games. Coincidentally ?, ”National Reporter Andrew Golden tweeted on Friday
For the first time this season, the nationals are wearing their blue jerseys tonight.
They win Game 7 when they wear the same ones. Coincidence?

A clear message to the Astros, however.
This is a strong message to use that particular jersey for the first time against the Astros in 2022.
They have won that championship in style, and have every right to celebrate.
The current status of the two companies, however, is very different: the Astros went to last year’s World Series and remain a strong contender to run another deep post-season this year.
The Nationals, however, are a strong candidate to finish with one of the worst records in the National League; And most of the players who helped win the title three years ago have failed to hold on.
They are said to be saving money for Soto extensions, yet their first offer was insufficient and now players seem eager to take things year after year.
It may take some time for Natra to compete again.
The flags flew forever, but for now, the franchise still refuses to let those memories go.
