A Fresher Look & Feel
A fresher look and feel of attending any baseball game at Nationals Park was the key point to the promotional media tour conducted today by Our Washington Nationals. Yes, the PNC Diamond Club has been completely renovated. Dozens of new food items will be offered. And quite a few new faces donning the Red Curly "W" on the field of play will suit up come Monday, April 5th for Opening Day.
Apparently, that's still wasn't enough because even more additions have been added to the South Capitol Street Ballpark--now entering it's third season of hosting Major League Baseball. Today's Media Tour touched on everything.
"We would like to make Nationals Park a destination stop. We want people to consider Nationals Park as a place to bring their families and to have a good time," believes Andrew Feffer, Chief Operating Officer for Our Washington Nationals. "And to do that, we need to make the ballpark even more attractive than ever."
Like adding two special Red Carpet Entrances for Season Ticket Holders Only at Center Field Gate. Season Ticket Holders must present their season ticket or their Nationals MVP Card to enter these gates. Those Season Ticket Holder Only Gates will not operate on Opening Day--due to the extra layer of security in place for the appearance by The President Of The United States.
Drink rails have replaced three rows of seats at The Red Loft.
Two additional rows of seats have been replaced with dining tables & chairs in the Red Porch.
A lounge is now located outside The Red Porch--Center Field Gate Side.
For 2010, beer offerings in the Red Porch have increased from four to eight including Blue Moon, Dogfish 60 Minute IPA and Harpoon UFO Jefeweizen.
The Miller Lite Scoreboard Walk has been upgraded and now includes outdoor lounge furniture, high top tables, umbrellas and the opportunity for fans to take advantage of Miller Lite Party Nites for every Thursday, Friday & Saturday home games. $20 ($22 for prime games) purchases a Scoreboard Pavilion Seat and a Drink Voucher for one beer, soda or water for all three of those days throughout the entire season.
There is also shuffle board, ring toss, bag ball and corn hole games available to play. Live DJ's on Thursdays & Saturdays, Live Bands on Fridays.
Also new for 2010, Cool Down Misting for warm days and Portable Space Heaters for cold days. As always, there will be a PreGame Show at The Scoreboard Walk with games and prizes. And--as reported the other day--for 2 and 1/2 hours before every first pitch--$5 beers at the Miller Scoreboard Walk.
Economy parking replaces the free Nats Express Shuttle Service option. The Park & Ride from RFK Stadium has ended. Fans can park in Lot HH (under the SE/SW Freeway) for $5 and walk to Nationals Park (10-15 minutes) or use Lot W across from The Navy Yard and park for $10. Metro, Biking, Water Taxi and other parking options are available. Click here for complete information.
Finally, here is a video presentation to be played at Nationals Park on Opening Day.
Tomorrow morning the final post of today's media tour--A Complete Story On Our Washington Nationals "Bring A Smile To Haiti" Program.
