Oops: 2016 Nationals calendar features Fenway Park on cover
Add this to the file of Things That Went Wrong for the Washington Nationals in 2015: A 2016 calendar for the team’s Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. has Fenway Park on the cover. Home of the Boston Red Sox.

"Major League Baseball has issued a statement on the error. “Our licensee used an incorrect photo in its 2016 Nationals calendar, a product that the Nationals were not involved in producing. We are working quickly to rectify the situation including recalling the calendars from retail."
At least the Washington Nationals are indeed pictured in the image as the photo shows the Red Sox and Nationals rising for the National Anthem on April 13.
