Another Shot At Opening Night

FIRST AN UPDATE: For those that asked this question the other day: Our Washington Nationals have CONFIRMED "Kids Run The Bases" will return on selected Sundays this coming 2008 Season. The Post Game Event where children 12 & Under are allowed to run onto the field and round the bases from first to home plate. A very popular event.

According a press release sent today by Our Washington Nationals--a limited amount of Opening Night Seats are now available. Here's the catch: You have to enter a lottery by registering your name at (although I don't see the direct link for the offer--just yet). Sign up begins on Monday--March 17th and ends next Friday at 5PM. Winners can purchase only two tickets and must, upon notification of hitting the jackpot--purchase the seats with-in 24 Hours.

Here's the Original Press Release:


The Team Will Conduct the Online Opportunity Beginning Monday, March 17.

As part of their continuing effort to make tickets available to as many fans as possible for Opening Night, the Washington Nationals today announced they are able to make a limited amount of Opening Night tickets available to the general public. Fans may register for the opportunity to purchase two tickets online at and winners will be selected through a random drawing. Registration will begin on Monday, March 17 at 9:00am and end on Friday, March 21 at 5:00pm. Selected winners will be notified via e-mail on Tuesday, March 25 and will have 24 hours to purchase their tickets. Tickets must be printed at home and will not be available for pick up at the Box Office Will Call.

Good Luck--hope everyone wanting gets satisfied.

I wonder if those 400 day-of-game first come $5 grandstand seats are still going to be available for Opening Night. Any way you can check on that SBF?

Anonymous--Yes, I am aware of the $5 Grandstand Seats and Standing Room Only, also. I asked the team earlier this week, but not official word has come back--yet.
