Nationals Park Gates Open As Fans Prepare For 7:25 P.M. Start Time

The Washington Nationals opened up the gates of Nationals Park at 6:40 P.M. and the game between the Nats and the Arizona Diamondbacks will take place in chaotic post-earthquake Washington at 7:25 P.M. The game is only starting 20 minutes later than the original 7:05 P.M. start time.

Team officials and other parties were concerned with the structural integrity after Washington D.C. suffered a 5.9 earthquake earlier this afternoon. After a lengthy review of the Park, it was determined that the game would go on, only a bit later than expected.
