Meet Washington Nationals All-Star Sean Doolittle and one of the Racing Presidents!
With a distinctive look, a fascinating personality, and a devastating four-seam fastball, Sean Doolittle has quickly become both a favorite of Washington Nationals fans, and a reliable reliever for the team as well. One of the most successful pitchers in the history of the University of Virginia, Doolittle was traded to the Nationals in July 2017 after spending five years with the Oakland Athletics. Doolittle has provided stability to the back end of the Nationals’ bullpen, having converted 43 of his first 45 save opportunities in Washington across the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Doolittle’s reliability earned him a spot on the 2018 NL All-Star team, his second such honor (he previously made the AL All-Star team in 2014 with Oakland). Doolittle and his wife Eireann are active supporters of charitable organizations that support veterans, at-risk LGBT youth, war refugees, and other highly vulnerable populations.
