Thousands of fans are packing into Nationals Park for the first game of the season.

"It's really special here at opening day. You're going to see five generals from each of the military branches throwing out the first pitch. We're going to have a flyover from the military this year. It's a patriotic day here at wet Nationals Park," says Andy Feffer, COO of the Washington Nationals.

The Nationals will also play the Braves on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Feffer says former TV host Larry King will throw out the first pitch.
