The Washington Nationals will retire longtime first baseman Ryan Zimmerman’s uniform No. 11 on June 18.

Zimmerman, 37, announced his retirement last month after 16 seasons with the club.

The two-time All-Star’s number is the first to be retired since the franchise relocated from Montreal after the 2004 season.

The Nationals announced plans on Monday for Ryan Zimmerman weekend on June 17-18, when the Philadelphia Phillies are scheduled to visit the nation’s capital.

The Nationals’ first-ever draft pick in 2005, Zimmerman won a World Series with Washington in 2019 and is the club’s all-time leader in games (1,799), runs (963), hits (1,846), doubles (417), homers (284) and RBIs (1,061).
