Highlights from baseball Opening Day in Washington D.C. from the 1920s to 2016. From Griffith Stadium to RFK to Nationals Park, the Senators and Nationals have featured presidents Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Bush and Obama for the ceremonial pitch.
On February 27, 1917, Manager Clark Griffith wanted to “abolish the Nationals.” The Washington nickname officially lasted nearly 40 more years and was revived in 2005.
