The News-Press’ own graphic arts designer Nick Gatz has won the first prize in the Washington Nationals’ #VoteNatsArtwork contest, and as a result he is invited to go onto the field prior to Friday’s Nationals game and present the Nationals’ line up card to the umpires.

Gatz’ art highly creative and original works have been featured in recent months at shows at the ArtSpace Falls Church. The last time a Falls Church person won a Nationals’ contest was when the young Samuel Waters won the audition to sing the national anthem at the start of a Nationals’ game in 2007.
