With Spring Training right around the corner, Nationals players are switching out of their offseason routines and getting back into the swing of things (pun intended).
For Juan Soto, part of his offseason routine was watching film from the World Series... well, one pitch in particular.
At the Washington Auto Show earlier this month, Soto spoke to NBC Sports Washington about the homer he hit against Gerrit Cole in Game 1 of the World Series.

How many times has he watched that home run back? "A lot of times," Soto emphasized. "A lot of times."
The 22-year-old had an amazing season but only Washington's hitting coach, Kevin Long, could have predicted him hitting the ball all the way to the train tracks of Minute Maid Park.
"When you hit the ball like that... against a pitcher like this it feels really good." Good news for Soto, he has a chance to recreate the magic and rewatch more home runs when the Nationals and Astros face off for the first time on Feb. 22 in West Palm Beach.
