The Post is confirming this afternoon the rumors I mentioned over the weekend: "The George Washington University baseball team will inaugurate the playing field [at Nationals Park] in a game against St. Joseph's University on March 22, GW officials and Nationals executives will announce as early as tomorrow." But it would be a bit of a dry run: "Attendance at the college game, which would be in the afternoon, would not be open to the general public and would instead be limited to GW and St. Joseph's fans, said sources familiar with the plans[.]"

In a press release just sent out by the Nationals, the team announced partnerships with 10 local food vendors for the ballpark. They are: Ben's Chili Bowl, Boardwalk Fries, Southwest's own Cantina Marina, Kosher Sports, Krazee Ice, Hard Times Cafe, La Piccola Gelateria, Mayorga Coffee, Noah's Pretzels, and Red Hot & Blue. (A partnership with Gifford's Ice Cream was announced a few weeks ago.) Read the release for details on the offerings of each vendor.
And, speaking of partnerships, WBJ is reporting that JK Moving & Storage has signed a deal to be the team's official moving company.

The Southwest Freeway now says there's a ballpark in our midst, so it must be true! (And of course the Bike Route signs started telling us this last week.)
Other news of the morning:
* The March issue of Washingtonian (not yet available online, but now on newsstands) has two articles of possible interest. One is an overview of the ballpark itself. The other is called "Ballpark Living: Can the Nationals Stadium Do For an Up-and-Coming Waterfront Neighborhood What the Verizon Center did for Downtown DC?", in which yours truly gets a mention. It's mainly an overview of the neighborhood's offerings now and down the road, most of which should be no surprise to anyone visiting here on a regular basis. UPDATE, 2/26: The article on the ballpark is now available online, though the other one isn't there yet.
* Speaking of magazines with special ballpark offerings, I mentioned On Site magazine last week--I'm told it's available this week (bundled with the current issue of the Washington Business Journal) at CVS, Borders, and Barnes & Noble.
* In both of these magazines, there's an updated rendering of the Monument's 340-unit residential building slated to be finished by the end of 2009 on the northeast corner of Half and N, just across from the ballpark's Center Field Gate. Monument was kind enough to pass it along, and I've added it to my Monument Half Street page (scroll down past the 55 M stuff).
And, be sure to catch my new photos from inside the ballpark (both inside and INSIDE) if you haven't seen them.
