Gerardo Parra wants a Baby Shark tattoo if the Nationals win the World Series

Gerardo Parra wants a Baby Shark tattoo if the Nationals win the World Series

Baby Shark took over the Nationals' second half of the season and it could live on forever if they win the World Series.

The song plays every time Gerardo Parra comes to the plate. The crowds love it. They participate in a giant group clap. It is an internet sensation. His teammates love it.

And after the Nationals won the National League Championship Series, Parra said in an interview on MLB Network that he wants to get the Baby Shark tattooed on his chest wearing his signature sunglasses and holding the World Series trophy if Washington goes on to win.

"I wanna do a tattoo with a baby shark, my sunglasses and the trophy," Parra said.

You cannot make this stuff up. Somebody will have to come up with a sweet design for Parra if the Nationals go on to win the World Series. He should probably do it anyway, but it would be cooler if they win.

The Wizards kicked off the festivities.

Justin Robinson got in on the fun.

So did Isaiah Thomas.

Jordan McRae poked fun at teammate Bradley Beal, who was rooting for his hometown Cardinals, not the Nationals.

It was too soon for Beal.

But he came around.

Some owner-to-owner love.

Their neighbors from the other side of South Capitol Street were plenty excited.

The Capitals, one of only three professional teams from the area to win a championship this century, know from experience what this feels like.

So do their players.

And their former players.

The Mystics are fresh off their own championship.

Coach knows what's up.

The newest D.C. franchise won't get a shot to win a championship of their own until 2020, but they're around to congratulate the Nationals at having a shot at winning one now.

This is sort of a congratulations. Partial credit for Pep!

The one-win Redskins won't be advancing very far this season, but they're still happy for the Nationals.

Derrius Guice was at the game!

Long snappers are people too!

Former Redskins are pumped too.

Even the Terps are pumped for the hometown squad for repping the DMV. 

The Spirit are in the spirit!

Cardinals pull Dakota Hudson after just 15 pitches in first inning

Cardinals pull Dakota Hudson after just 15 pitches in first inning

The Nationals are on fire. Eight Nationals batters put up seven runs and only recorded one out — which was a sacrifice fly that scored a run — before the Cardinals pulled starter Dakota Hudson and turned to veteran Adam Wainwright.

Hudson's start is the shortest in Cardinals' postseason history.

Hudson's seven earned runs are tied for the most by a pitcher in a start that was 1/3 of an inning or shorter. He's tied with Mike Foltynewicz, the Braves' starter who the Cardinals knocked out to get to the NLCS.

There's probably not much he could have done against these Nationals' bats, though.

Oh, and Patrick Corbin had five strikeouts on 23 pitches through two innings. The Nationals won, 7-4, to punch their ticket to the World Series.
