The Potomac Nationals, the Class High-A minor league affiliate of the Washington Nationals, held a tribute to the Mighty Ducks as part of the movie’s 25th anniversary

They celebrated by hosting Matt Doherty who played Les Averman throughout the Mighty Ducks trilogy. The first 1,250 fans got to take home a Les Averman bobblehead and the PNats players wore special Mighty Ducks themed jerseys during their game against the Lynchburg Hillcats. The game got suspended in the fifth inning with the PNats leading 6-5, but it didn’t damper the frozen fun.

About Michael Marzzacco

Michael is an avid DC sports fan with a passion for writing. He has followed the Washington Capitals since the 2003-04 season, around the time his enthusiasm for DC teams really began. It was from the days when they had the worst record in the league to when they became the most exciting team in the area. His Dad took him to his first Caps game a couple of years later. One of his favorite memories was being in the stands during the 2015 Winter Classic where Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds left. Michael graduated from Radford University in May 2016, earning a degree in journalism and focusing on sports journalism and broadcasting. His goal is to work in sports media in Washington, D.C.
