Nats U (Baseball For Women) – Postponed!

NatsU has been indefinitely postponed due to the day/night doubleheader with the Braves caused by a previous rainout. Those who already bought tickets will be automatically refunded.

(Last year's Nats U at Nats Park) Anyway, Nats U is returning again for the annual day women get to take to the field, bullpen and batting cages for a day of instruction and ... Continue Reading

No one wants to cheer an injury with the knowledge ... Continue Reading

If you're on the Tweeter and a Nats fan, the event you've been waiting for is coming. On July 3rd when the Nationals host the San Francisco Giants, they will also host their first ever team sponsored Tweetup. All you have to do is tweet to the team account "@Nationals RSVP #IYNT" for "Ignite Your Natitude Tweetup". The more fans who RSVP, the better the seat upgrade. I say we overwhelm them and end up in the Prez Club. What say ... Continue Reading
