In the past eight years, Delmar’s Jeff Fleetwood has gone from fielding ground balls for his hometown Wildcats high school baseball team to working on the field at Nationals Park. Fleetwood is in his third season as a member of the Nationals grounds crew. Fleetwood is teacher in Fairfax, VA. He was looking for a fun summer job and he found one that involved his love of baseball.
“I put my name in the pot with the Nats,” Fleetwood said. “I got a call to join the staff and and have not looked back.”
After graduating Delmar, Fleetwood played NCAA Division I baseball at Maryland Eastern Shore.
