For D.C., it's play ball


Washington's bid for a National League franchise has the support of Evening Sun readers and other respondents to "It's Your Call," a majority of whom said they would travel to Washington to watch a National League game if D.C. gets one of the two 1992 franchises.

Sixty-two percent (243) said they would be in favor of a franchise in Washington, with 58 percent (230) saying they would attend an NL game in D.C. However, a slight majority of callers did see a Washington franchise having a negative impact on Orioles attendance, with 223 of the 400 respondents (56 percent) saying so.

"It's your call represents a sampling of opinion from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
