Nationals Park preview

On Monday, Washington Nationals President Stan Kasten took reporters on a tour of the nearly-completed Nationals Park, pointing out all the recreational and dining options fans will enjoy. The restaurant in center field will be open to all fans, though there will be a special section for season ticket holders. Players will be treated to an ample, luxurious clubhouse, with such high-tech training equipment as an underwater treadmill. (Hey, I need one of those!) By next year, statues of Josh Gibson, Frank Howard and Walter Johnson will be completed, along with a team museum. Cool! See Parking issues are yet to be fully addressed, however, and there is sure to be chaos on March 30.

So, I've made a few text and layout touch-ups on the Nationals Park page, along with the other D.C. ballparks.

Unfortunately, the construction Web cam operated by OxBlue has shut down, presumably because the external construction activity is finished.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
