Washington Nationals Want $300 Million for Ballpark Roof

From D.C., of course.


The Washington Nationals want to put a roof over Nationals Park, and they want D.C. taxpayers to pick up the tab.

Multiple sources told News4 that executives with the team approached several District officials, including Mayor Vincent Gray's office, to propose the addition to the ballpark.

While the discussions are in the preliminary stages, diagrams of what the proposed roof would look like as well as estimates of the cost have been presented to the mayor's office.

The estimated cost would be $300 million.
