Not quite the Braves returning to Boston
This weekend the Washington Nationals are playing a home series against the Texas Rangers, who were the Washington Senators until 1972. I saw the normal blurb about a weekend series in Express but no other acknowlegement that this series even exists from any other media source. Definitely not the 15,550 stories of the old Boston Braves returning to Boston in 1997 as the Atlanta Braves for inter-league play. Or the 3,300 old Braves fans that were in the park. That series was really nostalgic actually. I should know. I was at all three games. My next visit to Nationals Park? Next Week vs the Angels and the Orioles.
