Thomas Boswell has been a Washington Post columnist for over 30 years, and is a trusted source for insight into all of Washington’s various college and professional sports. The author of six books on baseball, his weekly “Ask Boswell” chat is an amazing mix of insider’s insider (Q: Any idea if the Nats are on pace to set a record for lowest batting average with runners in scoring position? A: When we are hammering a nail, we never forget the times we hit our thumb, but we forget all the times we hit the nail.), impressive imagination (Q: Who says an NFL stadium has to be above ground? Dig a big pit and let the fans walk down to their seats. A: Just when you think you'll never hear another completely "new" idea.) and peeks-behind-the-curtain (Q: How often do you actually go to your office? A: Never.)

On any given week, Bos might be asked about the Nationals, Terps basketball, women’s tennis, the holes in the Redskins defense, free agency in baseball, and injuries in the Caps second line. And with his wealth of experience and connections in the sports world, he always seems to know the answer.

Now is your chance to join in. Bos is ready to take your questions live, with an onstage assist from veteran attorney, sportscaster, and SABR member Phil Hochberg.
