LONGEST HOME RUN:
Nationals Park was built in 2007-2008 to serve as the home of the Washington Nationals, who had moved to Washington, DC in 2005 and had played in RFK Stadium for their first three seasons. It took a protracted fight to get the stadium proposal approved by the District of Columbia Council, as a significant amount of public funds was poured into the $ 6000 million facility. The expenditure was justified by proponents by the fact that the ballpark would spur development in a neglected area of the city, in the District's disadvantaged Anacostia neighborhood. It was also argued that the team would attract a large number of fans from the nearby states of Maryland and Virginia who would bring significant tax income to the city by their spending in and around the ballpark.
