The Nationals Community Committee is working with the Nationals and the Department of Parks and Recreation to enhance the ballfield at King Greenleaf Recreation Center. This past year the Nationals donated baseball and softball equipment to King Greenleaf and Jefferson Middle School for use by both the girls and boys teams. Additionally Southwest youth participated in baseball clinics including the first math clinic focusing on elements associated with the Nationals and the stadium.
Also the Nationals worked with DC Public Schools to obtain school supplies for each of our schools here in Southwest. The Nationals have adopted Amidon Bowen Elementary School and many members of their staff volunteer once a week with Everybody Wins as mentoring students with their reading. The Nationals for the second year have held Neighborhood Night at a home game where community volunteers are honorees.
They have also sponsored a website for discount tickets for residents and people who work in SW. Additionally they have provided complementary tickets to youth and seniors, which has been a great success. While the Nationals finished two games out of a winning season, we only can look forward to the team getting better! Remember the opening game for next season is April
