Jerseys Off Their Backs Returns For 2010
The ever popular "Shirts Off Their Backs" promotion returns to Nationals Park to benefit The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation this week. Beginning with tonight's September 20th game versus the Houston Astros and running through the bottom of the 6th inning on September 26th when The Atlanta Braves are in town--fans can purchase $5 raffle tickets at The Dream Foundation Kiosk in Center Field Plaza (and at selected areas throughout the ballpark) in hopes of receiving an authentic game used uniform top. The jerseys worn by Washington's players this Sunday during the final game of the upcoming three game set with The Braves will be the uniform top offered to lucky fans that day.
Winning ticket holders will be notified during this Sunday's game and those present will participate in a post-game ceremony on the field. But it's important to note--you do not need to be present to win. The Dream Foundation will send any winner their jersey via mail. And there is no limit to the number of raffle tickets anybody can purchase.
Complete details in the team's press release below.
