Did you know?

As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about Nationals Park that we found especially interesting.

Facts Unique to
Nationals Park


Beneath it all

  • Layers of fill and old bricks were found 12-14 feet below grade, indicating the probability of roads and habitation at this level in the 1800s, until trash/fill was dumped to the existing level.

Stats

  • Capacity: 41,546 fans
  • Mascot: Screech
  • Stadium opened March 30, 2008

Cherry Blossom Trees

Nationals Park has 14 Kwanzan Japanese Cherry Blossom Trees, eight of which are located in the Center Field Plaza. The remaining six Japanese Cherry Blossom Trees are located on the Main Concourse beyond the left field seating area. These trees were grown in southeastern Pennsylvania and were transplanted to Nationals Park on March 6, 2008, in an official dedication ceremony.

Statues

World-renowned husband and wife artists Omri Amrany and Julie Rotblatt, along with Jody Rotblatt, Sean Bell, and Oscar Leon worked hundreds of hours to bestow on Nationals Park the likes of Josh Gibson, Frank Howard, and Walter Johnson in white bronze. These Negro League Baseball, Major League Baseball, and D.C. sports icons have now staked a claim near Home Plate Gate where they can be seen, admired, discussed, and argued over by all who enter the gates of Nationals Park. Known for many types of art mediums, the team from the Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany in Highwood, Ill. has created such artistic immortalizations as Michael Jordan, “Magic” Johnson, Gordie Howe, Ty Cobb, and – Mr. Take Me Out to the Ballgame himself – Harry Caray.

Our Reflections on the Game

Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team

Thoughts from James


Super clean stadium and more modern stadium in a good way. We had awesome seats behind home plate in the Delta Club which I highly recommend! The President’s Race during the 4th inning is hilarious! Screech the Eagle mascot was a fun character around the park and kept the fans entertained between innings. James

Christie’s Thoughts

The grande finale in our nation’s capital! What a way to end the tour! Near a river in the Navy Yard, you can see the Capitol Building, and the Washington Monument from the first base side! Parking isn’t great, so everyone uses the Metro. Newer stadium feel, and comfortable too. We had great food, clean bathrooms, and an excellent experience. Whoooo weeee #30 and over a 100 hours of watching baseball! What more can I say???! Christie
