The Washington Nationals pulled record numbers for most improved... on television.
Ratings for Nats games on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network soared 136.1 percent in 2010, reports the Washington Business Journal. The next best team was the Cincinnati Reds, which improved a "mere" 94.5 percent. The ratings were compiled by Nielsen Media.
You might credit some of that ratings success to star pitcher Stephen Strasberg. But even before his Major League Baseball debut in June, the Nats said the team scored the highest television ratings of its six-year history in D.C.
