The Washington Nationals baseball team recently added a submarine-related tradition to their home games. UNDERSEA WARFARE Magazine visited Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., to see this new addition, and we challenged our Facebook fans to guess what this mysterious tradition could be.

Mike Ragsdale said, "They are going to play a sub 'dive' horn if the Nationals hit a home run or win, as opposed to fireworks."

Mariecor Ruediger wondered, "Does it have to do with there being a baseball pitch named the 'submarine'?"

Andy Brinkmeier said, "It is the tradition of flying a broom upon returning to port to signify 'sweeping the seas' clean of the enemy. Similar to the home team 'sweeping' a series of baseball games."

To see if anyone guessed right, turn to page 30.
