It’s been almost a year since the Washington Nationals won the World Series, but it was the fans in attendance that made the victory even sweeter as 42,993 fans in Nationals Park threw their drinks up in the air in celebration.
This was the National’s first World Series win and if the fans had not been there, the entire atmosphere would have been different, as the team would have celebrated alone.
The last seven months have been a trying time for sports teams and fans alike as that special bond created when the arenas, parks, and stadiums are full has been largely unfulfilled in 2020.
Thankfully a ray of light for MLB fans is that the brand-new Globe Life Field Stadium in Arlington, TX will be allowing fans during the NL Championship Series and World Series games that will all be hosted at the new ballpark. There will be 11,500 tickets available for each game; 10,550 seats in the regular sections and 950 in suites will be sold in “pods” of four contiguous seats.
The World Series has not been played at one, neutral stadium since 1944 when the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the St. Louis Browns at Sportsman’s Park.
While the stadium may not be full, we are thrilled to witness teams and fans and celebrate as one again during the NLCS on Oct. 12-18 and for the World Series on Oct. 20-28!
