I'm glad they're doing this again. The money goes towards a good cause and the fans get something nice to take home in return. When they did this last month I paid the $25 to get a "mystery grab bag" and ended up with a ball signed by Wil Nieves.

Plus, considering the fact that most official balls would cost you about $10 or so if you were going to buy one unsigned off the shelf at a sporting goods store, $25 isn't bad for an autographed ball.

Bryan, the other nice thing is you get a ball that you know is real and help charity. On Tim's point a real MLB baseball in the team store is $20 and they have those Nationals kids balls for $10.

I am going to purchase a few balls tonight in hopes of getting a Ryan Zimmerman, a Jordan Zimmermann, a Adam Dunn or a Elijah Dukes.

I know last year they defeinitely had ryan Zimmerman balls as i know someone who got lucky enough to get one. On eBay they are $50 and more plus shipping.

In 2005 the team store in RFK sold autographed memorabilia and I wish they would do it again. Can Nats320 look into that.
