By Eliot on 4thJuly 9, 2018

Slide into All-Star Week at our apartments near Nationals Park!

 

Even if you’re not a die-hard baseball fan, it’s impossible not to get caught up in the excitement when the All-Star Game arrives at your home base.

 

At Eliot on 4th’s apartments near Nationals Park, we’ve laid out the best activities in the neighborhood between Friday, July 13, and Tuesday, July 17.

 

GEICO All-Star FanFest

All 5 days

 

Want to meet the best players of our national pastime? This is the best way to do it. Get a ticket for FanFest and you’ll have the opportunity to meet both current players and legends of the game.

 

There are baseball and softball activities every day, plus giveaways, a collector’s showcase of memorabilia and virtual reality cages to put you at the center of the action.

 

Color Run MLB All-Star 5K

Saturday, July 14

8 am

 

Join this one-of-a-kind race that will have you smiling ear to ear. Run 3.1 miles with MLB mascots to claim a unicorn hero medal, as participants lob paint at you. Catch a glob and throw it back to get the spectators involved.

 

By the end, you’ll be every color of the rainbow and all the happier for it. On the way home, stop by the Farmers Market and give the morning shoppers a bright surprise.

 

All-Star Workout Day™

Monday, July 16

 

Monday is your first chance to see the superstars of the game do their thing. Players will be taking batting practice in the afternoon, and at night, get ready for the majestic moonshots of the Home Run Derby.

 

Cheer on Bryce Harper as he dukes it out with other MLB heavy hitters for the chance to be crowned the home run king.

 

89th MLB All-Star Game

July 17

 

While the game no longer decides home-field advantage for the World Series, it still means a year’s worth of bragging rights for the winners. Plus, in addition to Harp, we have two pitchers in the game – Max Scherzer (who may start for the second straight year) and Sean Doolittle (who’s leading the National League in save percentage with 95.7)! And, depending on the outcome of the “Final Vote” contest, shortstop Trea Turner might be the fourth National to make the squad.

 

Grab (or borrow) some Nats gear for this night and show your hometown pride. If you haven’t managed to score a ticket, no problem. Eliot on 4th is so close to The Yards, you’ll only be minutes from all the parties.

 

Visit top hangouts such as Bardo, Bluejacket, Justin’s Café and more. Or, you can join the celebration at your Eliot on 4th apartment near Nationals Park by heading up to the outdoor rooftop lounge.
