Washington Nationals superstar Jayson Werth — a Chatham Glenwood graduate — is at it again, playing his style of ball with gusto and instinct. Some may call it reckless abandon, but for Jason he’s playing it the only way he knows how — all out. Behind his long hair and full beard, he still plays hard at 35 years of age. He roams the outfield like a deer chasing down balls in the gap. He’s not afraid to dive for sinking liners, and he hunts down pop-ups along the wall. On the base paths, he’s still quick and uses his instincts to steal a base. If he sees an opportunity to stretch a single into a double, he’ll take the gamble.
