The memories from the Nationals' first-ever World Series-winning season will live on forever, especially those memories including Gerardo Parra and "Baby Shark."
Early Wednesday, Parra signed with Japanese baseball team the Yomiuri Giants. Although only a Washington National for a short time, Parra's impact on the 2019 Nats will be felt forever.
We took to Twitter to ask Nats fans about their favorite Parra memories, and the replies will make you nostalgic.
An overwhelming number said Parra's go-ahead grand slam against the Dodgers.

Just days after his arrival in Washington, Parra's first hit as a National was a go-ahead grand slam on May 11.
In June, Parra decided to change his walkup song after hitting a bit of a slump. Inspired by his two-year-old daughter's favorite song, he chose "Baby Shark."

"Baby Shark's" debut game? Against the Philadelphia Phillies, a game in which he threw Bryce Harper out at third base.

“That's the only chance I had to get Harper,” Parra said to NBC Sports Washington following that June 19th matinee. “I know he's an aggressive player and I tried to get everything perfect. Bare-handed, throw the ball as fast as I can. I think that changed the game.”
Other fond memories involved Stephen Strasburg. Parra is credited for bringing out his fun side this season.

No matter your favorite Parra memory, one thing is for certain. Gerardo Parra and his impact in Washington, D.C., will never be forgotten.
Farewell, Parra Shark.
