Episode 7 of the gbNYC Audiocast turns the tables a bit as we interview our Producer, Ryan Genovese, who is also a Washington Nationals season ticket holder, about opening night at Nationals Park in D.C.- the first LEED-certified baseball stadium in the country. The episode discusses the stadium in detail, including fan reaction to particular green elements, though passes on any discussion of just how sustainable spending $611 million in public funds to build the ballpark might have been. We also take a quick look around the rest of the American sports landscape at green efforts from other teams, in terms of their facilities and business practices, both at the professional and collegiate levels.
