#IYNT Is Here

Follow @Nationals on Twitter | Like the Nationals on Facebook

Welcome, tweeps. The Ignite Your NATITUDE Tweet-up is finally here. We know you still have plenty of questions about just how the day will go, so here’s an outline of everything you can expect.

10:30 a.m.: We’ll begin taking requests all day for #NatsDJ, allowing fans to pick the music that will play after gates open at the ballpark. All you have to do is send a tweet with the artist, song title and hashtag #NatsDJ, to submit your request.

Tip: You’ll have a much better chance of hearing your song if the lyrics are clean or if there is a readily downloadable radio version.

11:00 a.m.: With Bryce Harper in the Final Vote for the National League All-Star Team, we’re giving you – the fan – the chance to ask him anything you’d like! Just submit your question for Bryce using #IYNT and keep an eye out later today for his answers.

4:00 p.m.: Center Field Gates (along N Street) will open to the general public. If you have RSVP’d and are taking part in the Tweet-up, go immediately to the check-in table at the top of section 140 when you arrive. Remember, it pays to get here early, as the following groups will receive the corresponding giveaways:

–       First 10 to arrive and check in at section 140: Special pregame meet & greet with Nationals players

–       First 140 to arrive and check in at section 140: Limited Edition Ignite Your NATITUDE T-Shirt

–       First 450 to arrive and check in at section 140: Exclusive #IYNT commemorative poster, featuring some of your favorite tweeting Nationals players (including a couple of All-Stars!)

When you check in, you’ll also receive a nametag with your Twitter handle on it to help identify your fellow Nationals fans and get to know the group you tweet with during the games.

5:30 p.m.: Got a question for Nationals EVP of Baseball Operations & General Manager Mike Rizzo? He’ll respond LIVE via @Nationals in the top of the 3rd inning! Ask away using #IYNT in your tweet and we’ll pick the best questions.

6:35 p.m.: First Pitch! But just because the game has begun, that’s hardly the end of the fun. Keep tabs on the game on the field and on Twitter, where we’ll have scavenger hunts for prizes and interactive features all night long.

Mid 4th: Stay tuned for the President’s Race. Enough said.

7th-Inning Stretch: We’ll see you back out in 140 with another special guest and another chance to win great prizes.

Remember to use #IYNT when you tweet, and we’ll pick the best tweet of the day to win 4 PNC Diamond Club seats to a future game! (rules) Not bad, right?

See you at the yard!


I have asked several times, responded to tweets asking for information .. and no one ever responds. I sent a RSVP a few days ago to the @nationals (but I am not in 140. I am sitting in stars and stripes tonight.) what tweet account do you send the music request … And I am a season ticket holder since 2005

Hey Marlene,

We tried to answer all questions leading up to the event here: http://curlyw.mlblogs.com/2012/06/15/your-handy-faq-guide-to-iynt/

You can submit music requests using #NatsDJ. Hope that helps!

I have sent two requests form @royalmusing but I have no idea if you got them .. and I RSVP’d twice but I am not in section 140 …I already had tickets to the game … But I have no idea if you got the RSVP because no one every responded to my tweet

We got it. We’ve been tracking all RSVPs, but since there were more than 700, we aren’t responding to everyone individually so that we don’t clog up the feed. You’re on the list, though, don’t worry!

Just reply with the hashtag #NATSDJ and they will see it, it doesn’t matter what twitter account you use. And if you used #IYNT and RSVP’d they almost 100% have your ID. We aren’t in 140 either, we are in 143. There was apparently “spillover.”

But I am in section 216

That’s fine- we have plenty of RSVPs from people who are in other sections. There will be pregame activities in 140 (which you can attend) and in-game ones around the ballpark.

I am still at work at 4 pm .. do I have do something when I get to the park?

If we just got a ticket from a friend in this section can we still use the hashtag to get a nametag?

As long as you RSVP’d via Twitter. That’s the only way to register for the giveaways.

I just RSVP’ed, but my two friends who are coming with me do not have twitter accounts… Can I buy 3 tickets together, or do they have to set up twitter accounts in order get tickets? Thanks

can I get a name tag if I am in section 216?

I still have not received an answer about getting a name tag if I have RSVP’d but I am in section 216
