Located in Washington, D.C., Nationals Park opened during the 2008 season with a seating capacity of 41,222. A construction marvel, the new stadium revolutionized ballpark design in many ways. Unlike RFK Stadium, the previous home of the Washington Nationals, Nationals Park was designed in an asymmetrical manner, with a configuration intended to create more exciting plays in the field. The ballpark also incorporates the city's identity, since fans in attendance are offered an excellent view of the Capitol, the Washington Monument, and Washington, D.C. Concessions and restrooms are located along the outer walls of the venue, allowing greater transparency so fans can see the game from virtually any area in the stadium. Nationals Park also has a sunken field, allowing fans easier access to field-level seating.By TBP
