Home Opener against The Philadelphia Phillies (April 5th).
Mother's Day (May 9th--The Marlins) and Father's Day (June 20th--The White Sox) at Nationals Park.
Independence Day (The Mets) to be celebrated again on South Capitol Street.
Labor Day (September 6th) against The Mets as well.
Memorial Day set at Houston (May 31st).
Even the very fact Major League Baseball has scheduled Our Washington Nationals to play in Pittsburgh again on a weekend in September--makes today's announcement of the 2010 Schedule even better. Nothing like traveling to PNC Park to catch a few games.
And The Chicago White Sox & The Kansas City Royals are coming to The Nation's Capital too--for the first time since baseball returned in 2005.
Do you think The President Of The United States had anything to do with his favorite team visiting Nationals Park?
Hopefully, President Obama will honor Our Team (Nationals) and His Team (ChiSox) by throwing out The Presidential First Pitch on April 5th and return on Friday, June 18th to do the same when The White Sox come to D.C.
Good Schedule, even a nice 15 day break from home games coinciding with The 2010 All-Star Break from July 12th until July 27th. The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals come back to back to Nationals Park in late August beginning the 23rd. The Cubbies for three. The Cards for four. The Los Angeles Dodgers will reappear early next year for three games beginning April 23rd, unlike late September the past few years in Washington.
And oh yeah--The Boston Red Sox are returning for a one-day engagement. An April 3rd Exhibition Game with Our Washington Nationals on South Capitol Street. One day before the regular season begins.
And finally, we have mentioned this many times and here we go again. We live in The Nation's Capital. Washington should always have it's First Game in D.C. each season, so The President Of The United States can be invited to carrying on a revived tradition. And remember, this Presidential Opener doesn't have to be the very first of all the Major League Games played each year, just Washington's First Game--that is what is important.
Here is the link to the complete 2010 Schedule for Our Washington Nationals.
