    Yup May 25th!! I was sitting next to the left field foul pole in the front row. The sun was brutal! I'm not a Nats or brewers fan really but I wanted to fly down from Albany and check out that park and Baltimore. The one thing that suprised me is that outside the stadium there is vertually NOTHING to do! It's built in an area where there are alot of government office buildings and older building I beleive are being knocked down... Ive been to about 10 MLB stadiums and this is by far the worst experience for things to do close to the park.
    i was at that game as well. i was on field level section 133, i got really burned that day from the sun. we actually had to move to right field under the overhang half way thru

      I'm happy for DC fans that they have something that they can be proud of (the stadium, anyway.) Damn shame that a city so richly deserving ever had to wait 34 years for baseball to return. Inexcusible.
      It IS a nice ball park, and as a Nationals and Tigers fan (I live in the DC area but was born and raised in Detroit and still love to get back), I'd note it shares some common design elements with Comerica Park in Detroit, namely the wide walkways, ability to see the game from all vantages, etc.

      I particularly love the Tiger Den seats. I'd much rather sit outside in one of these sections than the clubs.

        My own feeling is that the uppermost level is like the uppermost level at Comerica--just too far away. You may have a good "sight line," in some sections anyway, but the game will be a game of ants far below. I don't feel engaged with the game from way up there.

        As for the scoreboard/screen, I find it way too dominating if I'm in a seat which faces directly toward it. I don't really like any of the sections in the home plate to third base arc for this reason.
        You haven't sat in some of the older stadiums. The WORST seats in Nationals Park are far better than MANY of the seats even in Camden.

        • Looks like the Red Porch will be expanded, along with a few other changes at Nationals Park this year: http://www.jdland.com/dc/index.cfm?id=2854

            I've been to Camden Yards plenty of times, and I've commented on this site about the problems with some of its seating sections. Overall I still like it better.

            • I'm starting a mini of Busch II and you mentioned getting plans or cutaway views of the cantilever decks. What website would have something like that for me to view?

              • I think that "W" logo in rightfield is really sharp the way it floats like that.
                Section 521, row 5

                  Shouldn't they change that to "O" now?

                    Look at the signs on the parking garage in left field.
                    They can't even sell ads for a new stadium.

                        I think they may be tarped off

                          But why would they be tarped off and not the rest? That just doesn't seem very likely

                            Because those seats are padded.

                            • Very appalled at the organization. Went to DC two weekends ago... saw a Wizards gm... stayed over, then I saw the Stadium so I figured we tour it. Me and my buddy looked for tickets saw they were on sale at the stadium for that day, drove down to the kiosk to see they don't exist. Walked the perimeter of the place to realize nobody was there... Needless to say.. I don't think I'll go there agin.
