The Nats relievers, according to MASN’s Dan Kolko, were tired of having to stare through a fence to watch the action at Nats Park. So last season, Drew Storen — a product design major at Stanford — whipped up a first draft for elevated bullpen seating, which would afford the relievers an obstruction-free view of the action.
This week, the seating made its debut. The happy relievers were shown many times on MASN Tuesday night, enjoying their view, and also their new foot rests. And Storen proudly tweeted about his accomplishment.
Big day for the pen. Got ourselves some new seating to see the action from above the cage. pic.twitter.com/rliQV3u54A

New touch in the bullpen tonight: elevated seating for relievers. The original plans came from Stanford Product Design major Drew Storen. — Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) July 1, 2014
As this photograph indicates, you can now see little reliever heads poking above the fence from throughout Nats Park.

But if that doesn’t work, MASN had you covered.
