The legacy surrounding the Nationals and how they came to be is a very long and twisted tale that winds through some of the ugly of Major League Baseball. We'll take you on a tour of this stadium with a full history of how the Nationals came to be and almost didn't. Within hours of almost losing their existance forever... they somehow skirted death and have flourished into the franchise you see here today. This team is completley unrelated to the former Washington Senators teams of yore but are direct descendants to the first ever international Major League team, the Montreal Expos who began as an expansion franchise in 1969. Like we said it's a very long story but we have plenty of photos to show you along the way, so hold on to your stadium seats, because this is going to be a pretty wild ride.
