Take Washington out to the ballgame

The deal that placed the Expos/Nationals in Washington was off, but now it is back on today. Major League Baseball and dissenting members of the D.C. City Council came to a deal yesterday whereby some of the money for the renovations for RFK Stadium and the building of the new ballpark will come from private funds. The City of Washington will also be able to make money off of parking near the ballpark from the deal, which will be used to help finance the deal.

One positive about the return of baseball to Washington is that the Nationals will offer $7.00 bleacher seats. In an age when a family can't afford to attend most major league sporting events, it's great to know that some people want to keep baseball affordable for the masses.
