    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Adam Eaton may not stand tall, but he proves good things come in small packages. The new Washington Nationals centerfielder is only 5-foot-8, not big by Big League standards. However, what he lacks in size, he makes up in heart. “Anybody that’s small in size — in this game especially— you definitely play with a chip on your shoulder,” he said.
