* In the Washington Senators' final home game, on September 30, 1971, the Senators led the New York Yankees 7–5 with one out in the top of the ninth. Fans storm the field and tear up bases, grass patches, and anything else they can find for souvenirs. The Senators forfeit the game, 9–0.
* April 14, 2005 – Washington Nationals defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5–3, before a crowd of 45,596, to win their first home opener in Washington, D.C. They go on to sweep the 4-game series.
* June 17, 2006 – The Washington Nationals overcome the deficit of seven runs against the New York Yankees and beat the Yankees by blowing Yankees closing pitcher Mariano Rivera's save in the bottom of the eighth inning with Alfonso Soriano's steals and Jose Guillen's triple and Ryan Zimmerman's single in front of a sellout crowd of 45,085 fans.[1]

BBC to cut staff pension benefits
A strike by members of the National Union of Journalists at the BBC over proposed pension changes has entered its second day.

The union says the action, which began at midnight on Friday, has been having a "significant impact".

Radio 4's Today programme was cancelled on Friday, but the BBC News at Six and Ten O'Clock went ahead in full.

The NUJ, which has 4,100 members at the BBC, rejected the BBC's "final" offer. Broadcast union Bectu voted to accept.

A further 48-hour strike is planned for 15 and 16 November.

'Inevitable disruption'

NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear said: "It is a clear indication that BBC journalists will stand up for a fair pension deal.

"Programmes that are going out are being run by freelance staff or managers, using pre-recorded packages.

We have made clear this is our final offer and that we can make no more changes without imposing an unacceptable burden on Licence Fee payers.”

"The strike is incredibly solid and the impact will grow over the course of the next two days."

But BBC director general Mark Thompson said in his blog: "We believe that much of the output on the BBC will be unaffected by this action.

"However, it is inevitable that some programmes and content will be disrupted.

"This has been a difficult period for staff. However, the people who lose out most in any strike action are the very people we are here to serve - our audiences."

NUJ members at the BBC are also set to observe an indefinite work to rule from Sunday, ensuring they take full breaks and only work their minimum prescribed hours.

The dispute stems from the BBC's plans to reduce a £1.5bn pensions deficit by capping increases in pensionable pay at 1% from next April.

Under the BBC's revised offer, the amount employees would have to pay into the pension scheme has been reduced from 7% to 6%.

In return, they would get a career-average benefit pension - based on the average salary over an employee's entire career - that would be revalued by up to 4% each year. The previous offer was 2.5%.

When employees draw their pension, payments will increase automatically each year in line with inflation, by up to 4% - again up from a previous offer of 2.5%.

Bectu, which represents technical and production staff, said after last month's ballot that the amended offer was "the best that can be achieved through negotiation".

But it added their position could be reviewed if the pensions deficit turned out to be less than £1.5bn.
