I've never been to an opening day for any baseball team before. Well, that all changed yesterday, when I went to the Washington Nationals Opening Day baseball game. It was a lot of fun.
Parking is very limited at Nationals Park, so Metro's Green Line is the best way to get there. This photo was taken walking from the subway to the park. There were two fire trucks on each side of the street displaying the American flag, but the wind had other ideas, and the flag ended up all twisted.
Actor, spokesman, retired soldier and Season 13 winner of Dancing with the Stars, J.R. Martinez throws out the opening pitch. J.R. Martinez is an inspiration to all. He has overcome some horrific challenges to be where he is today.
It was a great day at the ball park, and although I am not a big baseball fan, I am a big fan of ball park food. Who knew it had become so upscale? But there's still the old time favorites, hot dogs and cracker jacks.
