Yesterday we went to a Washington Nationals – Atlanta Braves game at RFK Stadium in Washington DC.
The stadium was built in 1961 and is showing its age.
This is the last year the Nationals will play here and the Redskins left a decade or so ago. So it is a good thing we came now because we would have missed tis 60’s architechural landmark. The Nationals, for those of you not following closely, are the former Montreal Expos. Based on the promise of a new stadium they have been in DC for two years.
The Senators who played here in the 60’s left to become the Houston Expos. The best thing about the game, won by the Braves 3-0, was the Presidents race after the 5th inning. I had my picture taken with them:
Washington won the race.
They sang the National Anthem and America the Beautiful. What a great country.
