The Washington Nationals' 2006 season was the franchise's second season in Washington, D.C. and 38th season overall.

The Nationals finished last in the NL East for the third consecutive year (counting their final season in Montreal), 26 games behind the New York Mets with a 71-91 record.

Offseason

On November 4, 2005, the Nationals traded Vinny Castilla to the San Diego Padres for Brian Lawrence.[1] On December 8, 2005, they traded Brad Wilkerson, Terrmel Sledge, and minor-leaguer Armando Galarraga to the Texas Rangers for Alfonso Soriano.[2] On December 24, 2005, they signed Mike Stanton – who they had traded to the Boston Red Sox late the previous season – as a free agent.[3] On February 11, 2006, the Nationals sold Jamey Carroll to the Colorado Rockies for $300,000,[4] and on March 31, 2006, they sold Jim Crowell to the Philadelphia Phillies.[5]

Advertising and marketing

The Nationals' marketing slogan for the season was "Make It Your Pastime."[6] The slogan was a reference to the common saying that baseball is "the national pastime" in the United States.

Spring training

The Nationals held their 2006 spring training in Viera, Florida, with home games played at Space Coast Stadium.

Regular season

Groundbreaking for Nationals Park

On May 4, 2006, the groundbreaking ceremony took place for the Nationals' new ballpark, Nationals Park in Southeast Washington, D.C. Principal Owner Mark D. Lerner, Managing Principal Owner Theodore N. Lerner, Principal Owner Robert K. Tanenbaum, and Principal Owner Edward L. Cohen wielded the shovels at the ceremony; public address announcer Charlie Brotman emceed the event, and former Mayor of the District of Columbia Anthony A. Williams, former Nationals Manager Frank Robinson, representatives from Major League Baseball, the District of Columbia Sports and Entertainment Commission, the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation, and Clark-Hunt-Smoot Construction, and former Washington Senators and Homestead Grays players also attended. Less than two years later, the Nationals moved to Nationals Park for the 2008 season.[7]

Beltway Series

During spring training in 2006, the Nationals and Orioles played each other in Washington on March 31 and in Baltimore on April 1. The first match-up of the regular-season Beltway Series rivalry took place on May 19, 2006, at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium; the Orioles won. This marked first time in 35 years that the Orioles played a regular-season game in Washington; previously, they had played the original Washington Senators of the American League annually from 1954 to 1960 and the expansion Washington Senators – which replaced the original Senators – each year from 1961 to 1971.

The two teams split the 2006 season series 3-3 with each team winning two games at home and one on the road.
