Washington Nationals information
The major-league Nats play baseball at Nationals Park beside the Anacostia River. Don't miss the mid-fourth-inning ‘Racing Presidents’ – an odd foot race between giant-headed caricatures of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and William Taft. The stadium itself is spiffy, and hip eateries and mod Yards Park have cropped up around it as the area gentrifies.
Catch a game if you can. The Nats act as a strong social glue among DC’s transients and natives. And tickets are cheap, starting at around $15.
