April 14, 2005 - First Home Win 5-3
A Panoramic View at RFK Stadium - The Rob Arra
After 34 years, baseball returns to RFK and the District!
To the enthusiastic delight of over 45,000 fanatics on a beautiful spring
evening, the old Montreal Expos officially became Washington's team, and
the city began its love affair with the boys in red. With brilliant performances
from some of the new hometown heroes (including Livan Hernandez, Chad Cordero,
Vinny Castilla, Jose Vidro), the Nats posted a 5-3 victory, and sparked
a hot run that kept them in first place until after the All-Star break!
With picture-perfect clarity, The Rob Arra Collection
presents that historic day with "Inaugural Game", this spectacular panoramic
print for your wall and your collection. As the first home-park pitch in
Nationals history approaches Arizona Diamondbacks leadoff hitter Craig
Counsell...SNAP! The moment is preserved for all-time, in all its legendary
glory. From the finely groomed field, to the standing-room-only crowd,
to the newly renovated stadium (finished just in time for opening day!),
to the scoreboards and billboards, and the blue sky above, it's all here,
in perfect focus and brilliant color. And, as a special limited-edition
bonus, the border area includes authentic facsimilie autographs of each
player from that game's starting lineup: Castilla, Christian Guzman, Nick
Johnson, Brian Schneider, Brad Wilkerson, Ryan Church, Vidro, Hernandez,
and Jose Guillen. Whether you were at the game that day, are a fan who
fell in love with the team during those opening weeks of the season, are
a former Expos fan who still follows the team in Washington, or simply
a DC-area sports fan who wants to own a piece of history, this item is
for you! A must-have collector's item for the wall of any fan, perfect
for a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of home or office.
