Northern Virginia has lured another D.C. sports team across the Potomac River.
The team was based at the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy in the District last year after bouncing between the Nats academy, Shirley Povich Field in Rockville and Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf, Maryland, for the 2022 season.
The Hoyas won 30 games in both of those seasons, a first for the program, and a pre-season coaches’ poll projected it to finish fourth this year in the NCAA’s Division I Big East Conference, according to the team.
“We are really excited to play at Capital One Park this spring as it is an amazing first-class venue that will provide our fans a great experience,” Hoyas Baseball Head Coach Edwin Thompson said. “We look forward to providing a great product on the field and we know with Capital One Park’s amazing amenities, our fans will enjoy the gameday experience. We look forward to opening day at our new home this spring!”
Capital One Park opened at 1820 Dolley Madison Blvd for its inaugural season at the end of March 2023, hosting over 200 high school and college-level baseball games. The stadium features a synthetic turf field and can seat 650 people in fixed and bleacher seats.
The stadium is part of Capital One Center, the financial corporation’s headquarters campus in Tysons. Slated to be supplemented at some point by an urban park, the facility is intended to be temporary until the mixed-use residential and office buildings approved for the site can be constructed.
Capital One Park’s 2024 season will kick off in February. A full schedule is expected to be available this week, according to a spokesperson for Capital One Center.
The news that the Hoyas will make Tysons their new home came just a month after Washington Capitals and Wizards owner Ted Leonsis announced plans to relocate the professional hockey and basketball teams to Alexandria, though whether that vision comes to fruition remains to be seen.
