Well, guess it won't really be official until the first time Ryan Zimmerman trots out to left field for the real, live, Washington Nationals, but Saturday marked the debut of Ryan Zimmerman, left fielder, albeit for the Potomac Nationals. On Sunday, Zim saw his first defensive chances, which may or may not have led him to try to pull the plug on the whole experiment with another head-first slide. Apparently Zim will start another game in left on Monday for the P-Nats.
So when he returns on Tuesday to Washington, will it be in left?
Obligatory photos of Zim in left via Twitter, of course:

Also, Zim had to park his Bentley on the grass at the Pfitz, just like the rest of the minor leaguers:
