MLB Team Makes Change

The Washington Nationals baseball team is suddenly deciding to save energy by morphing their stadium into an energy saving machine. They have switched to new water saving pipes that save 3.6 million gallons of water per year which is 30% less. The new lights reduced light usage by 21% more than the typical lights. The batters eye in center field is made out of 100% recyccled material. After building the new field they recycled 5,500 tons of material. They even placed the stadium in the most easily accessable routes which uses less fuel on the way to the game. This is a move that many sports teams should concider doing.
