For a Clearer View, Bring Some Windex
From Tom: Our seats are seven rows back from the rail in the upper 300 section gallery level at Nats Park. To be clear, it's not really a "rail" at the front of the section, but a Plexiglas or tempered glass barrier that keeps fans from dropping drinks, food, souvenirs, trash or themselves down onto the lower deck.
These transparent walls can be found at the front of the 200 section, the 300 section and the upper deck 400 section.
From a distance, these glass walls look like an excellent innovation. Instead of a steel bar or bars, like the ones at RFK, Camden Yards, Memorial Stadium or just about any other place I've seen a ball game, the glass barriers do not block fans' view.
Except for the fact that they get kind of grimy!
I went to visit friends who sit in the front row of Section 416 the other day. We agreed that a good application of window cleaner might not be a bad idea. So we tried it the other night. My daughter even got in on the cleaning action, as shown in the picture above. We could only clean the side facing the seats. The side closer to the field could still use a good scrub.
