Book your luxury suite at Nationals Park for the Washington Nationals!
Never achieving much success in their original city of Montreal, this franchise made the move to the United States capital in 2005, where they would become known as the Washington Nationals and quickly garner quite a following. Overwhelming support in this transplant city has helped boost the team into a major contender in the NL East, facing off against such rival teams as the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies.
Dusty Baker’s second year as manager for the Nationals proved fruitful for the ball club. A regular season record of 97-65 saw the club win the NL East. Facing off against the Chicago Cubs in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Nationals were bounced in five games. Expectations are high for the Nats to repeat in 2018 and take another shot at the World Series.
Led by Bryce Harper, a polarizing all-star with a penchant for the long ball, the Nationals boast a strong lineup from start to finish. Ryan Zimmerman, Adam Eaton, and Daniel Murphy are just a few of the talented ball players the suit up for Washington each day.
The tandem of Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg as starting pitchers on the mound has every team digging in their cleats and anticipating the fire power. The statistics for this team are near the top of the league in all categories.
Taking over the NL East was no easy task, but Baker has put together the winning formula that has helped this team overcome its shortcomings and finish the regular season strong, making a push for October baseball. Washington baseball fans anticipate an even stronger performance in 2017 that could result in Washington’s first World Series title.
Ready to forge ahead after a tough playoff elimination in 2017, the Nationals look to build upon the foundation of last season to push for that next plateau and a chance to play in the World Series. For more information about the Washington Nationals click here.
