Softball players at the Washington Monument

Last Thursday, the National Park Service announced that it wants to close the grounds of the Washington Monument to recreational activities and to increase reservation fees for athletic fields in Rock Creek Park and on the Mall. Washington athletes who play on the fields around the District have mixed feelings about the plan, which will be open to public comments. Who should pay for maintenance of the athletic fields, and should sports be allowed at the Washington Monument? Kojo discusses the proposals with local athletes.
