• For one night, Nationals Park will belong to Ryan Zimmerman. On June 30, Zimmerman will host his annual ziMS Foundation "Night at the Park," an event that has raised more than $500,000 to date to benefit the fight against multiple sclerosis. The cause hits close to home for the Nationals slugger, whose mother Cheryl was diagnosed with MS in 1995. "[Multiple sclerosis] can mess up what you can do or how you go about what you do, but she doesn't let it mess up who she is," said Zimmerman of his inspirational mom. "You look at someone like that, who obviously can't do things they want, and for her to think of other people before her still is one of those things where you sit back and think, 'Man, there are a lot of people in this world who wouldn't do that. You never know what's going to happen with my mom. If you don't take time to enjoy it and realize life is good, you're going to look back and be disappointed." (The Washington Post)
