Ticket Discounts & New Promotions

One of the best walk up deals during the first three seasons of Baseball's Return to Washington--was the Military and Government Employee Discount at RFK Stadium. That tradition is continuing as Our Washington Nationals announced today a $3 discount on all Monday through Thursday Games at New Nationals Park (non holiday, non premium games). Senior Citizens, Government Employees, Active Military Members and College Students, with proper identification, can deduct that amount from all seats ranging in price from $10 and up. PNC Diamond Seats and Centerfield Lounge--do not qualify under this deal.

$7 to see a Major League Baseball Game is pretty good deal. A better price than attending a Movie. You are outdoors--where the weather is usually nice. How can you beat that in a day of approaching $4 per gallon gasoline? Think about it. $7 to get in the stadium, $7--tops--to get there on Metro. That's not awful--in anyone's league to watch Major League Baseball. I can't tell you the number of our friends that took advantage of this deal from 2005 at RFK Stadium.

Also announced--a few additional promotions. On Opening Night--a "Welcome Home" Rally Towel will be given to all Fans. And two Kids Promos are coming. A Kids Baseball Glove will be handed out on Sunday June 22nd (against The Giants) and a Kids Nats Jersey on June 22nd against Texas (any chance The Petite African Queen might qualify?--just kidding) Both giveaways to children limited to the first 10,000 that show up.

Here's the complete press release--including Harris Teeter Tuesdays and Sunday Family Packs:


The Washington Nationals today announced special ticket discounts for the upcoming season at Nationals Park and additions to their 2008 promotional schedule. The team announced the details for the “Harris Teeter Vic Card Tuesdays”, “The Washington Post Wednesdays” and the Sunday “Family Fun Pack” ticket discounts. At each Tuesday home game, fans may present their Harris Teeter VIC Card at the Nationals Park Box Office and receive $5 off tickets valued at $24 or more. There is a four-ticket maximum, available day of game only. Every Wednesday fans may receive $5 off tickets valued at $24 or more by presenting the front page of that day’s Washington Post at the Nationals Box Office. There is a two-ticket maximum per person and the discount applies only to that day’s game. The Family Fun Pack returns for all Sunday non-premium games. Fans may purchase an Upper Right Field Terrace seat, hot dog, non-alcoholic drink and chips for $14. There is a minimum of two-tickets per purchase for this promotion. Family Fun Packs may be purchased in advance on-line, via telephone or at the Box Office, as well as on day of game.

The Nationals will also offer discounted tickets to special groups throughout the season. For all non-premium, non-holiday games held Monday through Thursday, senior citizens, government employees, active members of the military and college students will receive a $3 discount off any ticket priced at $10 or more, based upon availability. Fans must purchase these tickets on the day of the game they wish to attend at the Nationals Park Box Office with the appropriate ID. Transactions are limited to one (1) ticket per person.

Ticket discounts may not be applied to added value seats, which include the PNC Diamond Seats and the Center Field Lounge Seats.

All fans attending the March 30 Opening Night game vs. Atlanta will receive a “Welcome Home” rally towel in addition to a “Curly W” lanyard. Children under twelve attending the Nationals game on Sunday June 8 vs. San Francisco will receive a Kids Baseball Glove and those attending the Sunday June 22 game vs. Texas will receive a Kids Nationals Jersey. Both promotions are courtesy of Smithfield and limited to the first 10,000 children.

Again, just passing along the information.

Those sound good. It would be nice if they continue the "Kids Run the Bases" after Sunday home games like they did at RFK.

Anonymous--Kids Run The Bases was so popular--I can't imagine under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE--that program not continuing.
