A Visit to the Ball Park
Friday afternoon we went to see the Washington Nationals play the Pittsburgh Pirates. Washington has a new stadium that I really wanted to see. You can get there directly using the Metro and we got there plenty early and sat in the bleachers watching batting practice. When it got closer to game time we took our seats - lower level hugging the right field foul pole. Nice!!!!
The stadium is nice - though I'm spoiled with trips to St. Louis and Busch Stadium. The food was adequate and the game was slow. In the fourth inning a generator blew and they lost half the lights. The game was suspended for almost an hour until they could fix everything - this was a first for me in a major league park.
We stayed until the eighth and left to avoid the crowds. We still have to pack and get ready for a morning flight home. Great way to end our Washington, DC adventure!
