On Tuesday, we at CSN had video of Nationals stars Doug Fister, Adam LaRoche and Ian Desmond completing the ice bucket challenge for ALS. Now one of their teammates had joined the good cause and sent his own challenge across the clubhouse.

Nats center fielder Denard Span tweeted a video of him doing the challenge in what looks like a training room at Nationals Park.

Without further ado, here it is:

You can tell by Span's scream that he did not cheat and use warm water. No wonder he is so good at avoiding the Gatorade bath after walk-off wins.

Also, as you saw in the video, Span has challenged Nats closer Rafael Soriano, as well as Phillies outfielder Ben Revere, a former teammate of Span's in Minnesota.

That begs the obvious question: will Soriano accept the challenge?
