Washington Nationals Baseball Park

The Lerner company wanted the backstop behind home plate to simulate the canal walls in Georgetown, and so they turned to Rugo Stone. We suggested and sourced a local mica-schist quarry, Carderock, to be used for the sawn bed rock-faced rubble stone ashlar walls which rest behind home plate.

Rugo’s skilled stonemasons exhibited their significant experience in this old world craft to hand-cut these walls, creating a unique stone appearance that ties the ballpark to historic Washington DC.
