Pleasant Surprise In The 2009 Season Ticket Package




The 2009 Season Ticket Holder Ticket Package was delivered to our house this morning. Similar in design to last season, the perforated ticket books were sent inside a blue with red trim cardboard display box with Washington Nationals Logo. Included with the tickets is a welcome/thank you letter from Team President Stan Kasten and an advertising flyer explaining how to sell your excess tickets on StubHub!



Each individual game ticket for 2009 features a different scene from Nationals Park. Some are game action shots, others show The Presidents Race, In-Game Entertainment and many fans and kids who attended the events on South Capitol Street in 2008. The look on The African Queen's face when she noticed she is prominently featured--was Priceless. On September 25th, when Our Washington Nationals take on The Atlanta Braves--The African Queen (AKA--Agent 99) and Jason Bergmann are posed together on the Season Ticket for that particular game.

To say Sohna was thrilled is an understatement. We are quite appreciative that Our Washington Nationals featured her on one of the 82 Game Tickets specially produced for Season Ticket Holders this season. It's a nice gesture, especially since she attended every single home game during The Inaugural Season of New Nationals Park.
The Larger Opening Day Ticket is laminated and depicts Ryan Zimmerman being mobbed by his teammates after hitting his game winning home run against The Atlanta Braves on Opening Night at Nationals Park in 2008.

The Letter from Mr. Kasten (click on the picture to enlarge & read) mentions the EXXON Strike Zone will now feature Life-Size Bobbleheads of Our Racing Presidents. The Red Porch Expansion is taking place, the unveiling of the Walter Johnson, Josh Gibson and Frank Howard statues is coming soon and that Levy Restaurants was brought on board in 2009, replacing Centerplate, to provide not only regular ballpark fare, but also more upscale items.

The arrival of the 2009 Season Ticket Package contained a very pleasant surprise indeed. We would imagine the other lucky fans featured would also feel the same way.

Sweet. I wonder if we partials get the same deal? I'm on the road now so I can't check until I get home.

The season can't get here fast enough.

Sohna- Congratulations. You are a great fan, and certainly make the tickets better looking!!
I can't wait to get down home from NY with my son and see the Nats this year.

No African Queen in the 41 game package, unfortunately....

I too was really impressed with the homage to the fans. Great idea.

On another subject, can someone explain Lastings Milledge as our centerfielder? He is neither in the top three offensively nor defensively among our outfielders. The OF should be a Willingham/Dunn platoon in LF, Dukes in CF, and Kemilpenahans in RF.

Paul: Interestingly, even Bill Ladson does not have Milledge in his starting lineup for 2009. He has Willie Harris as his centerfielder, Dunn in left and Dukes in right.
