The Fredericksburg Nationals franchise has relocated to Fredericksburg, VA and has built a brand new, state of the art stadium. It is located at 42 Jackie Robinson Way, in Celebrate Virginia South right next door to the Fredericksburg Expo & Convention Center.
The team secured naming rights with Virginia Credit Union to name the ballpark Virginia Credit Union Stadium in March 2022.
Since the franchise's inception in 1978, the team has had affiliations with several major league clubs, including Seattle, Pittsburgh, New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox, St. Louis, Cincinnati and Washington. The organization has played host to some of the most talented prospects in baseball, with current and past All-Stars playing for the franchise. The parent club up in DC has sent a majority of their players through and it has also been a popular spot for Washington's rehabbing players. The club has been affiliated with the Washington Nationals since 2005.
Art Silber is the Chairman & CEO of the Fredericksburg Nationals.
Oak View Group was retained by the Silber Family in efforts to better coordinate and expand events in the ballpark, and also manage and operate the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center. Oak View Group Facilities has a very successful history in delivering new content and booking live entertainment events in their client venues. This partnership is very exciting as Oak View Group, the Fredericksburg Nationals, and the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center will team up to provide the city of Fredericksburg with a lot more entertainment and engaging activities for the community.
“OVG is the perfect partner to come in and expand offerings at the Expo & Conference Center, and help us attract fans to the entire complex – whether for a baseball game, a concert, a consumer expo event, weddings, and so many other corporate and community events. Their national reputation and resources married with their desire to expand opportunities for the entire Fredericksburg community is very exciting,” said FredNats Chairman Art Silber.
