A few grandstand seats for sections 401 and 402 will go on sale for $15 at the main box office at 11 a.m. — one per customer, and each customer has to be there. A few more tickets may be released. The team said to check the Nationals website.
Street parking rates in the area will be $2.30 for the first hour, and $8 for each additional hour. There is no restriction on how long drivers can park at those spaces where the additional hours are $8.
Thursday will be dry, unseasonably cool and breezy but at least it will be sunny.
Temperatures will be in the mid-50s.
It wouldn’t be baseball without a little bit of flowing gold, provided you’re over 21. And there are new options for beer lovers this year at Nationals Park.
New 25 oz. craft beer can: $16.
25 oz. Budweiser products: $12.
16 oz. draft beer: $9
Budweiser Happy Hour
Budweiser Terrace has happy hour specials before every Nationals home game which feature $5 16 oz. cans of Budweiser and Bud Light. Happy hour lasts from the time the park gates open to 35 minutes before first pitch.
Virginia-based Aslin Beer Co. has also just opened a beer garden outside of Nationals Park.
The first 25,000 fans to enter the ballpark will get a 2018 schedule T-shirt from GEICO.
Entertainment before the game will come from DJ Flexx, Jeff From Accounting and DJ Stylus Chris. The Family Picnic Area will feature caricature artists, face painters and balloon twisters.
