A Spark Of Hope From 2nd Worst Season

 The 2022 Season was a huge bummer for Nationals fans from being the 2nd Worst Season to trading away two of our best players on the trade deadline day (Soto and Bell) to the San Diego Padres. They got to the NLCS but lost to the Philadelphia Phillies. A spark of light in a dark season came on Aug 2nd in the form of 30 Year Old Rookie Joey Meneses in his MLB Debut Homering in the 7th Inning in a 5-1 home victory vs. New York Mets.

From that night on through the rest of the season Joey soon became a fan favorite and one of the shining stars of the last part of the season. 

I have 3 Topps Now cards that commemorate a few of his highlights of the 2022 season.
