Drew Storen voted Nationals player representative

The Nationals voted closer Drew Storen, only 23 and a rookie with roughly half of a season in the majors, as their representative to the Major League Baseball Players Association. Storen was surprised and honored last week in Atlanta when his teammates nominated and voted him to the position.

"I didn't really know what to expect, because I didn't know much about the business side," Storen said. "I was kind of excited about it because I've learned a lot. There's a whole different side of baseball I didn't really know. To have a hand in fighting for the players' rights, it's pretty exciting. It's pretty cool to be in that position."

Storen has received help from fellow reliever Miguel Batista, whom he called "the unofficial, official player rep." Batista was not shy about sharing his opinion and working for what he believed. Neither, it seems, will Storen.

"I'm going to be a guy that's going to fight for the players," Storen said.

Well, he is a Stanford guy. It's not Cal, of course, but that probably figured into it.
