Washington Nationals fans worldwide will never forget about Gerardo Parra, and Parra will never forget about the special moments he spent with this World Series Champion team.
A few days after news came out that "Parra Shark" will be leaving the MLB for Japan and joining the Yomiuri Giants, he took to social media to thank the fans and organization for everything.
"I just want to say thank you, to the Nationals organization, to Henry Blanco and Dave Martínez for trusting me, to my teammates, to the media, and especially to the awesome and amazing fans of DC for giving me the opportunity to live the best chapter of my career and helping us get the fight finished."
Parra became a fan-favorite after incorporating the popular children's song, "Baby Shark," as he walk-up tune, as well as his clutch moments throughout the season.
The Nationals' twitter responded to Parra's farewell:
Dear Parra Shark,— Washington Nationals (@Nationals) November 21, 2019
We will never forget the impact you had on our 2019 World Series championship team. Your influence on and off the field is something that we will all remember and cherish for years to come. Thank you, and good luck! 👶🦈
