Beginning Monday, D.C.'s legion of sluggers will be congregating in a new location.
For decades, they stood and waited every afternoon at 15th Street in downtown D.C. That's where drivers headed out to Virginia would stop and let them in their cars.
The problem was, all those cars stopping to pick up passengers caused delays on one of D.C.'s major north-south arteries.
So now, after much consultation with sluggers, District transportation officials are making a change.
Instead of waiting on 15th Street, sluggers will now wait on the less heavily trafficked New York Avenue. Any drivers who pick up sluggers on 15th street will be ticketed.
