One of the best parts about spring is the return of baseball! Over the last couple of years, I have really come to love baseball and going to games at Nats Park. It's a great warm weather DC activity.
Yesterday was the home opener for the 2012 season. The team has been on the road for the first week of the season, so it was exciting to have them finally back at home. The team is off to a great start this year and there was definitely a buzz in the park!
The opening ceremonies were beautiful and gave a great tribute to our military, honoring them in several different ways.
It was a great day at the park, and while they tried to give it away in the 9th inning, ended up winning in the 10th. They are off to a 5-2 start, and apparently the best start of a MLB team in DC since 1951! Granted...there were a few years in the middle without a team in town...but it's still a fun stat!
We are looking forward to many more fun days and evenings in DC at Nats Park!
