Nationals v. Pirates

Going up to the outfieldbig color picker setting on my camera

I went to my first Nationals game in the new stadium this weekend and I loved it. I liked the convenience of RFK being on the Orange line, but the amenities and architecture of the new stadium more than made up for it. The first thing you notice when you walk in, is that the stadium has a very open feel. When you’re walking around the concourse, you generally have a good view of the field. There are a ton of places to get food and some randomly placed bars around the stadium to hang out and grab drinks. There was a bit of a hiccup with the lighting though, and the game had a 15-20 minute delay at the top of the 4th inning. All in all, I was very impressed with the Nat’s new stadium, and I can’t wait to go to a ton more games this summer and get some Ben’s Chili Bowl. Time to invest in some Nat’s gear.
