Bobby Kennedy to Get Second Billing

The DC Sports and Entertainment Commission wants a multimillion dollar deal that would rename the stadium named in honor of Robert F. Kennedy. DC Stadium was renamed RFK Stadium after Sen Kennedy's assasination.

RFK Stadium is home to the new "Washington Nationals" -- formerly the Montreal Expos of Major League Baseball. Since baseball left the nation's capital, stadiums have been named for products -- rather than people or cities or whatever. So the Commission has to play a little catch up.

On top of the sponsorship, "RFK" will still be part of the name, with the corporate sponsors name preceding that of the late Attorney General.
