Jayson Werth was ‘really inspired’ by attending State of the Union (vid)

MLB free agent Jayson Werth attended Tuesday’s State of the Union address by President Donald Trump and said afterward he was “really inspired” by the experience.

The former Washington Nationals slugger attended the State of the Union as a guest of Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.). Werth’s connection to the congressman is related to his 500-acre organic farm being in Davis’ district.

Werth’s passion for organic farming was detailed in a recent piece from Janes in The Washington Post.

Werth later said the experience of attending the State of the Union left him “really inspired.”

Regarding his lobbying efforts and rubbing elbows with D.C. elite on Tuesday night, the 38-year-old Werth said, “I can’t play baseball forever.”

Werth also detailed how he’s preparing to play in 2018 despite little overall action in the free agent market, including activity involving himself.

“The offseason’s been fairly normal in a baseball regard,” Werth said. “I’m still training. I’m still doing the same stuff I would do every other year. I’m actually training harder because I know I’m getting older, and the only way to keep up is to work harder, which sucks. It’s been fairly normal, other than I don’t know where I’m playing and it’s almost February — and I’m at the State of the Union.”
