About Washington Nationals

The Washington Nationals are based in Washington, D.C. The Nationals are a member of the East Division of the National League of Major League Baseball (MLB). The team moved into newly-built Nationals Park in 2008, after playing its first three seasons in RFK Stadium. The new park is located on South Capitol Street in Southeast D.C., near the Anacostia River and with views of the Capitol. The Nationals' name derives from the former Washington baseball team that had the same name (used interchangeably with Senators). Their nickname is 'the Nats'a shortened version that was also used by the old D.C. teams. An expansion franchise, the club was founded in Montreal, Quebec, in 1969. As the Montreal Expos, they were the first major league team in Canada. They played their home games at Jarry Park Stadium and later in the Olympic Stadium.
