On Thursday, members of the local media were invited on a tour of the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy in Ward 7, to take in, first-hand, all of the progress there. Turf has been laid down on two of the three fields, including  Field One, a full-size baseball field. The framework of the facility’s centerpiece – an 18,000 square foot building that includes eight classrooms, a teaching kitchen, batting cages and a fitness area – has been built, and crews worked around the touring party during Thursday’s visit as they remain on target for a January 2014 completion date.

For your own first-hand view, explore this gallery for updated photos of the beautiful site as it begins to come together, and click the link below to follow the progress live from our on-site camera.
