  • On the nights of the Home Run Derby and the All Star Game the last trains will depart from Navy Yard at EITHER 12:22 am in the direction of Greenbelt and 12:48 am in the direction of Branch Avenue OR 30 minutes after the end of the game, whichever is later. Only Navy Yard Station will be available for entry to the Metrorail system, and all other stations will be exit only.
