It's not business as usual in Washington D.C. right now, not since a gunman at the Navy Yard killed 12 people on Monday. It's not business as usual for the Washington Nationals, either. The Nats, who play their games just a few blocks away from the Naval Yard, are back on the field Tuesday — with a show of support for their neighbors.
Nats players wore Navy caps during warm-ups as they prepared to play the Atlanta Braves in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. The first makes up for Monday's game, which was postponed because of the shooting. The stadium parking lot was being used as a meeting area for Navy family members and friends in the aftermath of the shooting.

Nationals star Bryce Harper also encouraged fans to come dressed in Navy colors for Tuesday's games to continue the show of support.
