Nationals baseball is back!
Our world champion Washington Nationals are set to host the New York Yankees for Opening Day this Thursday, July 23rd. The first pitch is scheduled to be thrown at 7:08 pm by Dr. Anthony Fauci. We know that as a Capitol Riverfront resident you can’t wait to cheer on our home team for this exciting 60-game MLB season!
While our residents will not be able to attend the games physically this year, there are still a number of ways you can show your fandom of the neighborhood Nationals for Opening Day, as well as the entirety of the season!
In the past month, a lot of Capitol Riverfront bars and restaurants opened back up for business in an outdoor and indoor capacity.
