If he ends up play­ing for the Na­tion­als, Haney would first make a trip down to West Palm Beach, Florida for a round of rookie league play.

The Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als, who moved to D.C. from Mon­treal where t hey were for­merly the Ex­pos, also has sev­eral mi­nor league teams within their or­ga­ni­za­tion. Those in­clude the Syra­cuse Chiefs, the Har­ris­burg Sen­a­tors, the Po­to­moc Na­tion­als, the Hager­stown Suns (who play against the Rome Braves in the SAL,) the Auburn Dou­ble­days or the Gulf Coast League Na­tion­als.

The j ust grad­u­ated Cedar­town Bull­dog hopes as he has said pre­vi­ously to get to play be­hind the plate as catcher. He got to show off his skills dur­ing a try­out with the Na­tion­als, along with the At­lanta Braves, who he hoped might of­fer him a con­tract.
