Nationals Park… more than a baseball field

Nationals Park has hosted over 150 non-baseball events in addition to 164 Nationals games since its inception in March of 2008. The park has been home to a Papal Mass, the Elton John & Billy Joel Face2Face Tour, birthday parties, bar mitvahs and even a wedding.

The Nationals partnered with five different organizations this year and provided them with a unique twist on a common fundraising venture–a walk around the ballpark. The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, American Diabetes Foundation and American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks all took place in and around Nationals Park. Additionally, the Opening Ceremony for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk and the Symposium for the Avon 2-Day Walk took place at the park.

 Thousands of people participated in these events and raised over a million dollars–while enjoying the beautiful concourses and sightlines at Nationals Park for a cause close to their heart.  The club looks forward to expanding these ventures in 2010–anything is possible at the ballpark with a little imagination.

I have to say that Nationals Park can be a lovely place to hold a large event. I’ve only been there once for a game, yet I was impressed with the area. Very spacious, and the area has very good amenities.

I attended the Elton John/Billy Joel concert. The acoustics weren’t great — I’m not sure if the ballpark itself is to blame or the Face2Face sound system is to blame. But I love Nationals Park, and I’m sure it would be a great place to hold charitable events. Fundraising walks are a great idea.

I recently came across your article and have been reading along. I want to express my admiration of your writing skill and ability to make readers read from the beginning to the end.
