Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

Nationals vs. Pirates -- May 1stNationals vs. Phillies -- July 29thSunday March 30th is Opening Day for the Washington Nationals baseball team.  While opening day for baseball is exciting enough (and who doesn't enjoy sitting in the stands during beautiful springtime weather?), this time around it is really special because it marks Opening Day for the newly constructed $700 Million Nationals Park in Washington D.C.  

Nationals Park has already sold out to its 41,888 seat capacity for Opening Day.  Excitement is in the air and buzzing all around the D.C. area about the new stadium, which is expected to become the first major stadium to receive certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council. 

The location around the new stadium will become a major D.C. destination, with shops, restaurants and other entertainment tied to the redevelopment of the Anacostia Riverfront.  Nationals Park was constructed in less than 2 years from groundbreaking to Opening Day, a record pace for the building of a major league stadium.  

Compare the hitting distances in the new Nationals Park to the old field at RFK Stadium, and you'll see that big hitters are in for a bonanza of homeruns this year:

It's time for baseball                             RFK                            NATIONALS PARK

Left Field                380 feet                      377 feet 

Center Field            410 feet                      402 feet

Right Center           380 feet                      370 feet

Right Field              335 feet                      335 feet

 

The Washington Nationals are hoping to attract baseball fans to the park with good baseball, and... good food.  Food vendors at the new Nationals Park include Hard Times Cafe, Cantina Marina, Noah's Pretzels, and others.  Five Guys Burgers and Capitol City Brewing Company are still in talks with the team.

We're taking the kids to one of the home opener games the first weekend in Denver.  They are away this weekend so we have to wait for next week, but that's ok.

Brian  As Earl Weaver said, "The key to winning baseball games is pitching, fundamentals and 3 run homers."  We probably will attend games - The trip to Camden Yards was not much fun,  Karen

I always loved a good baseball game!  What a great incentive for consumers this time of year.  On top of already working with a great realtor!

STEVE:  Going out to the ballpark is always a fun time.  I'm just glad I don't have to drive up to Baltimore anymore, though Camden Yards is a great park.
