The winter can feel like one of the slowest seasons of the year, especially for baseball fans who long for the season to pick back up again.
But Nationals outfielder Juan Soto met with fans on Saturday at a Dick’s Sporting Goods in Bailey's Crossroads, Virginia, and did his best to make them feel merry by getting in the holiday spirit.

Soto already helped give D.C. the greatest gift of all in a World Series title, so maybe he really is Mr. Claus.

Dating back to his days as a Minnesota Viking, running back Adrian Peterson has always been a Green Bay Packers killer.
Peterson is now sporting the Redskins' Burgundy and Gold instead of the Vikings' purple, but he's been equally as effective against his former divisional rival.
The 34-year-old rushed for a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter, bringing the Redskins within one score. It was Peterson's eighth rushing touchdown in Lambeau Field in his career, the most ever from any opposing player.
The score was also Peterson's 16th touchdown all-time against Green Bay. Only Chicago Bears legend Walter Payton has scored more touchdowns against Green Bay (19) than Peterson.
Peterson is in all likelihood a first-ballot Hall of Famer, but his numbers against Green Bay are one of the more impressive things on his résumé.
