Baseball in Washington D.C. finally made its way back and now celebrates more than a decade of being back in the District. For 30+ years the city was without a pro-baseball team, but that was rectified in spring 2005 when the Montreal Expos became the Washington Nationals. The team was first slotted to play at RFK Stadium with a future stadium planned. In 2008 the Nationals finally got its own digs and it’s a beauty.
