Hopes are high for the Nationals this year since finishing first in the NL East last season. The team is hyped up and beginning to gain traction on this season. With a long string of home games on the horizon, most fans are expecting improvement on the Nationals’ current 10-12 record.
The Washington Nationals’ 2018 Season Update
After a three-game cross-country trip to San Francisco, the Nats return home on Wednesday and stay there until the week of May 7th. The upcoming series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Philadelphia Phillies are all home games every night from April 27 to May 6. These home outings are a great opportunity for the Nationals’ to start pulling ahead on their standings – and for local fans to enjoy all the fun of baseball in D.C.
Coming to Nationals Park for a Home Game
During downtime before or after a game, there are many attractions around Nationals Park to explore, including:
The Yards Park – With summer close at hand, so are the Friday Night Concerts at this popular park. Kids will also enjoy the shallow “river” to splash in and large expanse of soft grassy fields to race on.
The District Winery – Located within The Yards, this winery offers tours, tastings, and a place to eat. Their beautiful setup and delicious wines will delight all of the wine lovers who pass through.
The Bullpen – This Nationals Park staple consists of a full-service bar and a parking lot surrounded by interesting décor. Fans will often congregate for a game of cornhole before or after the Nats play. What it lacks in sophistication it makes up for in tradition, but try to visit soon – there are questions about the future of this legendary watering spot.
