ROOTING FOR THE HOME TEAM: Nationals COO Andrew Feffer said of the team's "Take Back the Park" campaign, initiated for last weekend's series against the Phillies, "To me, it couldn’t have gone any better. I had a strong feeling our fans would show up this weekend, and as I looked at the crowd, I was proud to be a Washingtonian. Our fans understood how important these games were, and our fans rose to the challenge. ... I see this as a preview of what [is] to come. It doesn’t end this weekend; this was just the beginning." Feffer added, "Over 106,000 showed up for the weekend. Of those 106,000, the story before had always been that there were more Phillies fans than Nats fans. I thought our fans took back the park. The overwhelming majority of the fans all three nights made a statement that was certainly strong" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 5/8).
