Approximately 12 minutes before the first pitch of any home game at Nationals Park, the HDTV Scoreboard always plays a special 90 second historical tribute to baseball in Washington. D.C. The video always leads up to the playing of The National Anthem.
It's a very well produced video and no matter where Sohna and I are inside Nationals Park we stop, watch and listen to the entire sequence on the scoreboard or on one of the countless monitors placed throughout the South Capitol Street Ballpark. It's really that good. Our understanding is the music used in the tribute is from the HBO Mini-Series John Adams--but we honestly don't know the title of the song.
Here is the complete "Please Rise..." video shown before every home game of Our Washington Nationals.
