A month of extreme heat and severe storms has proven daunting for Metro.
The Nationals will open the World Series on the road, traveling to Houston to take on the Astros for the first two games before heading back to the District. But the team is intent on packing Nationals Park anyway, as the stadium will host viewing parties for each of the Nats’ road games so that fans can watch their team on the jumbotron.
Admission into the park is free, but tickets must be reserved ahead of time. Parking passes will also be available.
For the first two games of the series—both of which begin just after 8 p.m. ET—the center field gate will open at 7 p.m. NATS PLUS members also have the opportunity to reserve premium seats behind home plate and at the Budweiser Brew House.
Game 1 of the World Series begins Tuesday night, when Cy Young contenders Max Scherzer and Gerrit Cole will face off in an attempt to propel their respective clubs to a 1-0 series lead.

Coming out victorious against the undefeated San Francisco 49ers is already a tall task for the 1-5 Redskins, but it'll be even more difficult on Sunday, as the Burgundy and Gold are down two of the best offensive weapons.
After suffering a toe injury against the Dolphins a week ago, running back Chris Thompson will be unable to play vs. San Francisco. Additionally, tight end Vernon Davis will also be in street clothes, as the 35-year-old continues to recover from a concussion.
In wake of Thompson's injury, running back Craig Reynolds was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday. He is active.
Dealing with both a hand and thigh injury, cornerback Josh Norman will be sidelined for Week 7. This doesn't come as a surprise, as No. 24 did not practice all week.
