For 45 years, Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium was home to baseball in Washington D.C., as the Senators played there 1962 to 1971, and then the Nationals from 2005 to 2007.
A relic of a time gone by, the old ballyard hosted its last major league baseball game on Sunday, and it is fitting that the Nationals emerged victorious by beating the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-3.
Even though Washington baseball has been associated with the hard-luck Senators, the 40,519 fans who flocked to the stadium to see the Nationals, but honor the team that has stolen the hearts of many baseball fans in the region, as well as honor the old Senators who played baseball a generation ago.
On a high note, the Washington Nationals did leave RFK with a winning record at 122-121, and as well drew a little less than two million for the season.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!
