To my Nats Fans: since day one I’ve always had the feeling you would have a special space in my heart but the appreciation that I have for you went over my expectations. Thank you for being such a great family to me. With Love & Gratitude…Forever Yours, Juan SotoJuan Soto
The outfielder, who helped the Nats win the World Series in 2019, returned to Nationals Park a little more than a week after the trade as the team hosted a three-game series against the Padres.
As of Feb. 21, the asking price for the home was $1,025,000.
