* We knew he'd been asked, but it's now confirmed that President Bush will be throwing out the first pitch at Nationals Park on Opening Night (March 30). Officials from the team have told me that they've acquired more than 50 magnetometers to handle the security checks for the expected 41,000-person sellout crowd. But it's also one more reason to get there plenty early; the gates will open at 3:30 pm. Barry passes along the message from Stan: Take Metro! Stan also says, as we've heard from multiple sources lately, that the team is continuing to work on some same-day/cash lot parking, though it isn't in place yet. (They've said previously that they're trying to figure out how to offer these spots in a way that would prevent too much additional congestion, perhaps by requiring spaces to be purchased via the Internet beforehand.)
* As for the surface parking lots, work is speeding up (just in time!). Striping and lighting looks to be mostly done on one of the Blue Zone lots at Third and Tingey in The Yards (dull parking lot photo here), and work continues on the two lots along First Street north and east of the ballpark. Ditto for the lots on Capper/Carrollsburg land, all of which are in the Orange Zone. Asphalt is being laid at Lot W at Seventh and M on the old Capper Seniors site (another dull parking lot photo here). Stormwater management systems, gravel, and lighting are in at lots U and T on Third Street between I and L (more not-quite-so-dull photos here and here, both of which show the new signs now posted).
To manage these Capper lots, the DC Housing Authority has chosen UStreet Parking, a certified DC Local, Small, Disadvantaged Business (LSDBE) that handles the parking at RFK, the Convention Center, and many swank spots that geeky old neighborhood bloggers will never see the inside of, such as Love and Ultra. Look for some free parking days in April, along with monthly parking accounts and possibly some cash parking, especially now that the Performance Parking signs (and the enforcement expected to accompany them) have taken away the bountiful free parking on Capper streets that local residents and workers have gotten used to.
UPDATE: And yes, I've gotten an updated version of the Maine Avenue sign. And "Nationals Park" is now added to the Sixth Street and South Capitol Street exit signs, though not yet with the Curly W attached.

I see they're installing what looks like an LED ribbon board above the Red Porch.

I remember a while ago it was mentioned that they're not putting the baseball up there. Is that still the case?


JD says: (3/16/08 11:04 PM)
Nope, no more big baseball up there....

There was a rumor a few days ago that the Nats brass were querying WMATA about changing the Navy Yard Station name to reflect the name of the stadium AFTER they sell the naming rights for it. I heard Metro turned them down, but the question remains - will this still be called Nationals Park on Opening Day?


JD says: (3/17/08 12:28 AM)
Yes, the name change/Metro says no thing was in the media at the end of February:

(last item)

I think it's a slim chance that it's not going to be named Nationals Park on Opening Day--anyone paying for naming rights would presumably have wanted it in place for Opening Day.

fyi, there is also new signage along the I-270 corridoor reflecting directions to Nationals Park. I did not get a chance to take a picture but there is a new road sign before the Father Hurley exit directing Nationals Park metro access at exit 9.

I'm awaiting when theyre going to plant some grass in the batter's eye area...and also what theyre going to do to cover up the green monstrosity just above the batter's eye area...Yuck!


Jeff W says: (3/17/08 4:04 PM)
I'm glad the big baseball won't be there, but will will go in its place?


rc says: (3/19/08 9:47 AM)
no tree's in the batter's eye. it is and will remain small plant growth.

the centerfield restaurant baseball feature was killed off long ago. the circular ad panels remained and are installed. i have not heard of anything replacing the doomed baseball however that does not mean the nationals will not opt to install something, at some point.
