Washington Nationals starting pitcher Collin Balester is going green and wants to help keep this world clean.

Balester has joined the team at "We Play Green" which was co-founded by Chris Dickerson of the Cincinnati Reds and Jack Cassel of the Houston Astros. "The goal is to bring professional athletes together to inspire communities to build awareness of the growing environmental crisis."

We Play Green already has an impressive list of athletes on board and will have a blog and t-shirts coming soon.

Balester just so happens to play at the first Green Stadium! Nationals Park is the nation's first major professional stadium to become LEED Silver Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
