Synopsis

Politics is nothing new to Washington, D.C., even in the arena marked off with base paths and outfield grass. The stadium for the expansion Washington Nationals baseball team cost over $600 million dollars and while opponents decried the waste of taxpayer money, supporters promised the stadium would generate economic development. Land swaps, closed-door deals, and valuable parking-lot strategies were as complex as any strategy employed on the diamond. The district's past stadiums, tracks and Olympics facilities are archived and described in this history, along with their political backdrops. It features drawings, photographs and maps.
