The stadium was renamed in January 1969 for U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in Los Angeles the previous June. As Attorney General, Kennedy’s Justice Department played a role in the racial integration of the Redskins, threatening not to let the team move into the federally-owned stadium until it promised to sign African American players.
A complex conversion is necessary, at a cost of $40,000 per switch, to move the stadium seating from the baseball to the soccer/football configuration and back again.
