Autistic Ticket Taker Yearns for More

David Finland helps guests Tom
Walker of Washington and
his mother, Carole Walker at
Nationals Park.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- David Finland shows up to work at Nationals Park several hours early before each home game because, well, no one’s exactly sure why.
A 24-year-old from McLean, Finland settles into a bumper sticker-laden, paint-scraped and dented silver Toyota Corolla, turns on the radio, then a rock CD, then back to the radio and heads into town. Some days, such as a recent Wednesday, he gets lost and has to rely on his Garmin to find his way. But he always arrives well before it’s time to clock in.
