Page Notes  
Franchise History for the the Washington Nationals. A franchise is a perpetual entity that exists over time as a single entity, regardless of its location. The franchise section for the Major Leagues tracks a franchise through its evolution of relocations and name changes. Outside of a change of ballpark and ownership, a relocated franchise will often retain the majority of its players and often their front office.
