The Washington Nationals are an American professional baseball team based in Washington, D.C. The Nationals compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League (NL) East division. From 2005 to 2007, the team played in RFK Stadium; since 2008, their home stadium has been Nationals Park, located on South Capitol Street in the Southeast quadrant of D.C., near the Anacostia River. Game Records The Nationals are the eighth major league franchise to be based in Washington, D.C., and the first since 1971. The current NL club was founded in 1969 as the Montreal Expos, part of the MLB expansion. The Expos were purchased by MLB in 2002 after a failed contraction plan, and the team was moved to Washington, D.C., and named the Nationals before the 2005 season, marking the first franchise relocation in MLB since the third Washington Senators moved to Texas in 1971. Nationals Park hosted the 2018 MLB All-Star Game.
While the team initially struggled after moving to Washington, the Nationals had considerable success throughout the 2010s. The team’s two overall first picks in the MLB draft, Stephen Strasburg in 2009 and Bryce Harper in 2010, attracted new levels of attention to the team. They won their first playoff berth and first division title in 2012. They won the National League East again in 2014, 2016, and 2017, but were eliminated in the NLDS each time. Their first World Series appearance and win came in 2019, when they entered the playoffs via the Wild Card, eventually advancing and defeating the Houston Astros to win the 2019 World Series.
