The Washington Nationals are the eighth major league team to call Washington, D.C. home, and they began their tenure in the city in 2005. Before moving to Washington, D.C., the franchise was known as the Montreal Expos. The Expos were founded in 1969 as an expansion team, and were purchased by the MLB in 2002 before being renamed and relocated to the nation's capitol. Before the Nationals moved in, seven other franchises called Washington, D.C. home, including the Washington Senators, who moved to Texas in 1971.
The Washington Nationals won their division four times (2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017) in a six year span from 2012-2017, but the team never made it past the first round of the MLB playoffs. The Nationals/Expos franchise broke through in 2019, winning their first ever pennant and World Series Championship. The Nationals returned in 2020 falling to the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2020. The Nationals have had a number of successful players over the years, including Hall of Famers Gary Carter, Andre Dawson, and Tim Raines. The team has also had several All-Stars, including Ryan Zimmerman, Stephen Strasburg, and Max Scherzer.
