Math and Health teacher James Collins won a Twitter contest to play a game of fungo golf, a combination of golf and baseball, with Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams last month.

The Nationals picked Collins’ entry as the winner, and he had the opportunity to challenge Williams and spend a day at Nationals Park.

“It was great,” Collins said. “I won the opportunity to play fungo golf with Matt, tickets to that night’s game and lots of fan gear like shirts and hats.”

Along with Williams, Collins also played with Dan Kolko, the nationals’ sideline reporter.

“Dan’s Twitter profile says that he is obsessed with blue Gatorade, so I brought him one,” Collins said. “He thought it was clutch.”
