Over the teams past road trip the ball club made several aesthetic changes to Nationals Park, all of them involving painting parts of the stadium to a dark shade of blue. The most notable change is to the Shirley Povich Media Center (Press Box), which in the past was a strong red that stuck out amongst the blue seating.
Below is a picture taken by Cheryl Nichols of “Nats News Network – Off The Field” showing us how the press box looks now:

Personally I like the new look a lot. I think it’s much sleeker and it makes the stadium look less amusement park like. It’s not Disney, it’s D.C., and I think the Lerners got it right. Not to mention…the colors are now way closer to what we have here at The Nats Blog…coincidence???
In all seriousness, I think the blue will provide a much more classic and clean backdrop to what we will soon hopefully see in that stadium, October baseball.
