PHOTOS: Ryan Zimmerman’s ziMS “A Night at the Park”

Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman hosted the ziMS Foundation’s Third Annual, “A Night at the Park” at Nationals Park on June 14, 2012 to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.

It was an off day for the Nationals and several of Zimmerman’s teammates and coaches attended the event, as well as helped the cause by bidding on items in both the silent and live auctions. The Batting Stance Guy entertained the crowd with his spot-on impersonations and the band Guster closed the event with a live performance.
