One of the most fun new destinations in Washington is Nationals Park. The home of the Washington Nationals is a treat not just for seeing a baseball game, but also for incredible sights (such as the U.S. Capitol and the Anacostia River), sounds (fireworks after home runs) and other cool things to do (playing video games or eating a chili dog).

But would it be as much fun if you went to the ballpark not for the entertainment, but for your job? What if it was your job to be there for every home run, double play and strikeout? David Betancourt sought out four people whose jobs require them to go to the ballpark every day to find out if it really is as much fun as it sounds.
