This week on Baseball Across the Commonwealth, we travel to the Northern Virginia city of Fredericksburg. The city is home to plenty of history, but one of the more exciting things happening in 2021 is the inaugural season of the Fredericksburg Nationals. 


The Nationals were originally supposed to begin play in 2020, but with the MiLB season canceled, their first season was pushed back a year. Now they're ready to open up their gates, and they've got a lot of fun stuff planned for this season.


We also chat with 6 Bears and A Goat Brewing Co., voted the best brewery in Fredericksburg three years in a row. They are brewing the official beer of the Fred Nats, and they've got a lot to offer at their taproom. Tune in for both of those conversations and more!
