The Nationals were running their 5 dollar ticket special for games 6/20-6/27 so we bought two tickets to Saturday’s game against the Rockies. It was a giveaway day as well, we each got baseball totes. Since they fold up into themselves, I could see it being useful since it packs down to almost nothing and is the nylon material so it would dry out quickly if it got wet.
One of the things I always think is so fun is the Presidents Race that they do during the fourth inning. They used to have four presidents that raced George, Tom , Abe and Teddy. This year they added a fifth, Bill. It used to be a long standing joke that Teddy would never win, but when the Nats made the playoffs last year he finally did! Recently the presidents have started standing near the entrance to take pictures as people come in so I got my picture with Teddy!
The team started off giving up a few runs in the first inning and it didn’t get much better from there. They ended up losing 7-1. It was a nice day out though and we still had fun. Plus I got my Bryce Harper t-shirt!
