Clearwater, FL (Oct. 22, 2019) – Will the Nationals win the World Series?
Nicholas the rescued dolphin at Clearwater Marine Aquarium has selected the National League champion Washington Nationals to take the pennant.
When the Astros were in the 2017 playoffs, Nick surprised Vegas when he chose them to win the World Series.
Nicholas is a rescued bottlenose dolphin that was found stranded in 2002 with severe sunburns. He was orphaned and unable to learn necessary survival skills as a calf, therefore he became a permanent resident at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Making unbelievable sports predictions is just one of Nick’s many talents he has demonstrated and is a special part of his animal enrichment.
How it works: Nicholas is presented with a choice during his normal enrichment activities. For this prediction, Nicholas was presented with the choice between a Houston Astros or a Washington Nationals baseball hat. Today, he chose the Washington Nationals hat!
