Matt Williams nearly hits 'fungo golf' hole-in-one from Nationals Park upper deck

One hundred and sixty-two games is a long season. Even baseball's most dedicated students and teachers need to unwind every once in a while, and it's tough to squeeze a full 18 holes in when you're spending every day at the ballpark. 

The solution: fungo golf.

Nationals manager Matt Williams and his fellow coaches are known to turn Nationals Park into a golf course of sorts, using a frisbee as a hole while playing golf with baseballs and a fungo bat. (It plays a lot like disc golf.)

MASN held a contest so that one lucky viewer could play a round of fungo golf with Williams, and the network's Dan Kolko tagged along.

At one point, the guys headed to the upper deck, where Williams' tee shot just lipped out in the outfield hundreds of feet below.
