  • LaRoche enters his second season as the Nationals first baseman

  • Had season-ending surgery on a torn labrum in his left shoulder in May 2011

  • Played flawless defense before his injury, with no errors (out of 412 total chances) at first base

  • Professional baseball runs in the family - father (Dave, Pitcher) and brother (Andy, 3B) are big leaguers
