There are plenty of shows performing tonight in DC, and most patrons will undoubtedly be on their phones during intermission (PLEASE wait till then!) to check on one history-making event. That is, of course, the 2019 World Series in which the Washington Nationals lead the Houston Astros 2 – 0 in the best of 7 game series.
The Nationals will play before a sold-out house of 40,000+ at Nationals Park, starting at 8pm.
Brian Feldman, DC’s favorite award winning performance artist and baseball fan figures there are sure to be questionable calls and challenges. Before fans decide who’s right, and who’s out, Feldman figures they should know the rules, and so he will read aloud the MLB 2019 Official Baseball Rules Book across from the Center Field Gate entrance to Nationals Park, in the manner of a street preacher, while dressed in an authentic MLB umpire uniform. (Feldman points out that the word “fan” appears only twice in the official baseball rules? See: Rule 5.08(b) Comment.)
You don’t need to be a ticket holder or passerby to see Feldman’s performance. You’re Out! Brian Feldman Reads the MLB 2019 Official Baseball Rules Book Outside Nationals Park Before Game 3 of the 2019 World Series will be live streamed in its entirety at periscope.tv/BrianFeldman and on the Facebook Event Page
Friday, October 25, 2019 from 5:00 – 8:00 PM EDT

And here’s what you can do while you’re waiting through those umpteen late inning player and pitcher changes,
