Nationals-Yankees Grapefruit League contest cancelled due to rain

The rain continues to fall in Viera but after the 2009 season which saw 22 games affected by rain… it doesn’t really come as a surprise that a Nationals Spring Training game has been cancelled for the second straight day. Today’s 1:05 p.m. Nationals-Yankees Grapefruit League contest at Space Coast Stadium in Viera, FL has been cancelled due to rain.

If you are holding tickets for either March 11 vs. Houston or March 12 vs. New York (AL)–both games were cancelled by rain–you can exchange those tickets for any other Nationals 2010 or 2011 Spring Training contest, subject to availability.

Nationals Spring Training season ticket holders will be notified in the coming days as to policies affecting their tickets for both March 11 and 12.

The Nationals’ next home game is Sunday, March 14 vs. St. Louis. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m.
