Nationals Ballpark Construction Media Tour - Unveiling of the Turf
November 13, 2007
On November 13 the DC Sports and Entertainment Commission, the Nationals, and Clark/Hunt/Smoot held a tour for the media to show off the newly installed turf, and to give the latest news about season tickets and the 2008 schedule.
Remember, most of these photos are taken with somewhat wide-angle lenses, which allows for a better view of the surroundings but which distorts sizes and distances. The stadium and the scoreboard are huge in person.
The state of the Nats ballpark on November 13, 2007, as seen from directly behind home plate. The turf installation began on Nov. 1, and was completed on Nov. 9, the same day that the last HD panel was hung on the scoreboard.
I just can't take enough pictures of the scoreboard. The high-definition panels are now all hung. The W at right will be a clock. The white panels will be for advertising displays.
