Harrisburg Senators

Metro Bank Park on Harrisburg's City Island is home to the Senators, the AA affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals. The Senators (founded in 1987) have enjoyed success not commonly found among minor-league teams by winning 6 Eastern League Championships, including four in a row from 1996-1999.  Annual attendance is strong with the Senators drawing about 300,000 fans each season.  Major-league stars like Stephen Strasburg, Ryan Zimmerman, and Cliff Lee all spent time in Harrisburg on their way to The Show.
