The Washington Nationals are trying to keep Phillies fans out of their ballpark, even as the District of Columbia is trying to get Delaware Valley tourists to visit there.
The Washington Nationals effort to keep Phillies fans from taking over their park during the May series between the two teams has prompted reactions from amusement to outrage.
The Phillies have won five straight N.L. East titles and with that success, comes a larger fan base. It is a fan base that loves to travel with the team and in some cases, take over opposing stadiums. However, one of the Phillies rivals in the N.L. East is trying to put an end to that trend.
