WASHINGTON (AP) -- Baseball has returned to the nation's capital, with the Washington Nationals playing the Atlanta Braves in a doubleheader taking place only a few blocks from the site of the mass shooting at the Navy Yard.

The vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff greeted players in the Nationals clubhouse before the game, handing out blue and gold Navy caps to wear during warmups. Flags were at half-staff on the center field concourse, and a moment of silence was held before the first pitch.

The doubleheader was scheduled after Monday night's game was postponed in the wake of the shooting.

Said Nationals outfielder Denard Span: "There's nothing we can do to replace the lives that were lost yesterday."
