WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – A few months ago, Nationals owner Mark Lerner revealed to 106.7 The Fan some of the suites at Nats Park would be receiving facelifts, and upgrades would be made to amenities in common areas around the park, ahead of the 2014 MLB season.

“One of them is called the ‘Golden Glove’ suite, and one of them is called the ‘Silver Slugger’ suite for larger groups,” Lerner told Holden Kushner in January.

He made good on his promise, with the organization revealing those refurbished suites Thursday to select members of D.C. media.

Lavish upgrades include hardwood flooring, plush leather seating, and pool tables, along with the traditional offerings of flat screen televisions from which fans can either watch the live feed from the Nationals game playing out in front of them, or surf the cable dial for alternative programming.

Stadium upgrades weren’t limited to the suite levels, however. Also noted by Lerner in January, was the covering of concourse flooring with a new, textured red coating.

“We knew it would take about five years, six years before it would get really dirty and you couldn’t get it clean anymore, and we put a textured coating on it that is absolutely fantastic, looks like you’re walking on carpeting,” Lerner said at the time.

“It’s hot looking,” he added.

“We’re going to computerized menu boards,” which Lerner said should expedite concession stand lines.

There’s a new team slogan in 2014, too.
