Washington Nationals Fans Ready As Nats Host St. Louis Cardinals In First Playoff Game In D.C. Since 1933
This NLDS Game 3 pits the Nationals–the team with the best record in the majors at 98 wins–against the defending World Series champion Cardinals, who made the playoffs as a wild card with 88 victories. But the real story is the rise of baseball in Washington, a city that went without the national pastime for 33 years.
For those not going to the Nats first home playoff game, whose daily commute takes them past the ballpark, be sure to read this before you get in your car.
It’s no secret the Nats are playing at a strange time Wednesday – just strange enough of a time it could affect morning and afternoon rush hours. Be in the know about road closures, alternative methods of transportation, and how to avoid the mess altogether.
The Nats’ 3-2 win over the Cards Sunday gave Washingtonians the first baseball playoff win they can remember. Many Washingtonians became fans of the Baltimore Orioles after the Senators left Washington in 1971. However, Baltimore is a totally different place than D.C. Does anyone root for both the Redskins and the Ravens? Not many fans would boast of that. You have to choose between the Nats and the O’s and if you’re from D.C., the choice is clear.
