What could be done instead:
Enlarge RFK via an Outer Ring

Hysterical baseball rush: Ignoring RFK enlargement

The thought that keeps reoccurring: Why not play at RFK? Permanently.

When Jack Kent Cooke wanted to build a new stadium for the Redskins, using part of the vast parking area out there between Eastern High School and Kingman Island, sensible voices were raised to urge the cheaper and simpler solution. To enlarge RFK.

That’s right. A local architect, since moved to Frederick, Md., testified to the City Council that enlarging RFK would be relatively inexpensive, could be done quickly, by adding another tier of seating (a second circle around the already circular structure), and could be done without demolishing the present playing field — in a single off-season.
