#2 – There’s a new 10 year badge at the center field (main) gate:
#3 – There’s a new bar, Captain Cove, behind section 132.

And Virginia Crunch, which will have Virginia peanuts, popcorn, and bourbon glaze bacon.
#5 – Red seats in the outfield to signify home runs
#6 – The nationals have a speakeasy, Club 24.
