The Washington DC Area is represented by a professional team in all 4 major sports leagues and has a rich history in all of them, replete with superb players that have made their mark individually and by helping their respective teams reach their goals and capturing many world championship titles along the way.
Almost everyone recognizes the logos of the teams that have represented the Washington area in all major sports leagues over their lifetimes. Many of these teams didn't reach the pinnacle of their sport, but there have been some special squads some that have. There have been some exceptional players on all of these teams over the years. It is the goal of this author to follow our current rosters and feature many of our heroes from the past as we move forward. With the re-addition of Major League Baseball 15 years ago and the Washington Nationals capturing their first World Series Championship and the Washington Capitals finally capturing the Stanley Cup in Professional Ice Hockey, there has been an upsurge and a revitalization of interest in area sports. The Washington Wizards seem to be trying to find a formula that works, but have met with only transient success for an extended period. They still have hopes of reaching that highest level, but have been unable to take that next step in 4 decades. The Washington Football Team has been mired in mediocrity on the playing field for over 25 years, but with the installation of Coach Ron Rivera and an insurgence of younger and faster players and winning a division title last year, the team appears to be on the verge of reversing their fortunes. The Washington faithful can once again hold out hope that success is just around the corner and this will be their year. If the woeful Washington Valor of the Arena Football League can win a championship title with a 2-11 record, then that is proof that almost anything is possible. I can't cover many of the other area's major professional leagues at this time on this web site such as the DC United (Major League Soccer) who virtually owned the sport in their first seven years of existence or some of the other area teams, such as the WNBA's Washington Mystics (Women's Professional Basketball) or the KASTLES (Professional Team Tennis). I will touch upon them as I can and as news warrants, but my focus for now will be on the four major professional leagues that represent the Washington, DC Area. I will however post on some of the personnel in the area minor leagues affiliated with our top organizations as developments warrant because some of these players will one day be wearing a professional Washington Sports uniform.
