In the lead up to Opening Day at Nationals Park on April 1, we’re counting down 13 things we’re excited about on and off the field heading into the 2013 season. Be sure to check back each day as we add another item to the list and get one day closer to the return of baseball to Washington!
#5: The Ultimate Ballpark Access
New for 2013, we’re revolutionizing the fan experience at Nationals Park with The Ultimate Ballpark Access. It’s the next generation of ticketing, and it’s exclusively for Nationals fans.
Simply put: in 2013, your card is your ticket. No more worrying about keeping track of paper tickets for every game, for six months or more. Everything is reduced to a single card that fits neatly in your wallet.
By moving your entire Season Plan online, we’ve allowed you to add partners to your plan and share seats via email with just a click. Want to trade in your seats for another game ahead of time? Easy, just use the Future Exchange Program. Miss a game without having a chance to exchange your seats? Turn them in this year and you’ll receive Red Carpet Rewards Points, which you can use to bid on special experiences, autographed items and merchandise, using the new auction feature.
And yes, as many of you have asked, you can still have commemorative tickets printed at the advanced ticket sales window, should you so desire, for only a $3 fee. All proceeds will go directly to the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation.
Still have questions? Hopefully this will help. And as the crowds continue to grow at Nationals Park, hopefully you will continue to reap the rewards.
As well-recognized celebrities, Major Leaguers are often approached with many different types of charitable opportunities. And while we have our very own charitable foundation here at the Nationals – the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation – there are a number of opportunities outside the organization that our players are involved with. One such organization is Teammates for Kids, founded by country music singer Garth Brooks, which has raised over $80 million since 1999, donating 100% of the money to children in need.
On Friday, January 11 during the Winter 2013 Teammates Appreciation Event in Garth Brooks’ Nashville, TN barn, Teammates for Kids launched their twitter handle (@teammates4kids) with Garth Brooks pledging to donate $1 for each new follower through today, Friday 1/18.
Nationals players who were “teammates” last season included:
- Tyler Clippard
- Ross Detwiler
- Gio Gonzalez
- Adam LaRoche
- Craig Stammen
- Drew Storen
- Ryan Zimmerman
- Jordan Zimmermann
In addition to their generosity, each athlete who participates in the program has their contribution tripled by Teammates for Kids. So go ahead and knock out your good deed for the day – give Teammates for Kids a follow and help our players’ donations go even farther this year.
