Washington Nationals are based out of Washington D.C. and play in the National League of the MLB. The franchise is placed in the East Division. The home stadium of the Nats is the Nationals Park in Southeast D.C. Prior to 2008, the Nats played their home games at the RFK Stadium.
New Team, Old Name
Washington Nationals joined the MLB as part of the expansion phase in 1969. At that time, the franchise was based in Montreal and was called the Montreal Expos. The Expos were the first non US based team in the MLB. In 2005 the team was relocated to Washington DC and came to be known as the Nationals. Previously another team that played in DC was also called Washington Nationals. However, once it relocated to Arlington and became the Texas Rangers, the name was once again available.
The Nationals had their most successful years as the Montreal Expos. The first true victory came in the form of a division title which the franchise won in 1981. That same year, the Expos advanced to the playoffs where they defeated the much vaunted Philadelphia Phillies. However, they lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a closely fought affair, thus ending their dream run. Since then, the franchise also had a positive season in 1984 when it posted the highest points total in the league.
In total the Nats have so far won three Division titles. But the one record which they sorely want to get rid is that of being one of only two franchises to have never participated in the World Series. Fans will be hoping that this is the year when they make a title winning run. Be there to support the Nats; buy Washington Nationals Port Saint Lucie tickets now.
