Nationals | Ian Desmond changes number

Washington Nationals SS Ian Desmond changed his uniform number from 6 to 20 to honor Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, who wore 20 as the first manager in Nationals history. "He was the first one, really, to believe in me and guide me," Desmond said. "I still stay in touch with him still today. He was a good player. He handled himself right." 2B Danny Espinosa also changed his number from 18 to 8, the number he had always worn before reaching the majors.
