NATS: Happy Birthday, Kurt Suzuki

HAPPY 29th BIRTHDAY KURT SUZUKI!

Washington Nationals Catcher Kurt Suzuki was born on 10/04/1983 in Walluku, Hawaii.

Kurt Suzuki joined the Washington Nationals in August, joining former Oakland Athletics teammate LHP Gio Gonzalez. The two were reunited and have been a dynamic duo. With Wilson Ramos out for the season, Suzuki was added for this defense, not his bat. After working with Nats hitting coach Rick Eckstein, Suzuki’s batting average keeps rising and his bat has became an asset and almost like a secret weapon.

Nats fans have embraced Suzuki and hope to see his success continue into the post-season.

Follow Kurt Suzuki on Twitter (@KurtSuzuki) and be sure to wish #24 a Happy 29th Birthday.
