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.
This season the team is under new management. Dusty Baker has moved to DC to manage this ball club with aspirations of taking them to the promise land. Expectations are high as Baker calls on one of the best players in the game today, the polarizing Bryce Harper, to ramp up the intensity and get the adrenaline flowing through this roster.
The off-season signing of free agent Daniel Murphy added even more firepower to the lineup and a solid second baseman. 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.
Taking over the NL East is no easy task, but Baker has put together the winning formula that has helped this team overcome its stumbles from 2015 and finish the regular season strong, making a push for October baseball. The result was a powerhouse team that pushed the Los Angeles Dodgers to a deciding fifth game in the Divisional Series. The Dodgers went on compete in the World Series, losing to the Chicago Cubs.
Ready to forge ahead after a tough lesson learned in 2016, 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.
