I was kind of disappointed that they do not really have an unique Grapefruit League logo and the Spring Training 2013 logo is for both Arizona and Florida, but I still decided to get the baseball to for my collection. Certainly better than the plain white ones they had with the Curly W. The Strasburg and Harper ones were more interesting, but I am not much into collecting the player specific baseballs.
For the game we sat in the bleachers (219). The view of the field was good and the bleachers are not bad since they do have backs. Dad found the $10 deal for a hot dog, fries, and souvenir cup of soda pretty good. I was disappointed to find them have stands advertising cheese and pizza pretzel only to go up to order and find out they only had plain ones this season. How hard is it to cover up the options no longer available?
Overall fun to see the Nats play some baseball and looking forward to them playing at the Braves Friday, but still anxiously awaiting some real baseball come April and seeing if they can be good again.
