The fifth year of baseball at Nats Park
gets underway Tuesday (April 3), with an exhibition game against the Boston Red Sox
at 3:05 pm, followed immediately by the 2nd Annual Wounded Warrior Amputee Celebrity Softball Classic
Tickets for the Nats game also are good for the softball game, and a portion of the proceeds from tickets purchased here
will go to the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team
. Celebrity participants include
Mayor Gray, Jack Evans, Mike Isabella, Bryan Voltaggio, David Gregory, Darrell Green, Johnny Holliday, Luke Russert, and all other manner of local TV and radio personalitiies.
(Plus, the first 20,000 fans get a 2012 Schedule Magnet!)
If you're a resident, watch for some crowds and additional traffic, and of course beware of roving bands of marauders with Massachusetts accents.
The Nats' 2012 season officially begins on Thursday in Chicago versus the Cubs--they'll arrive back in Washington for their home opener on April 12, against the Cincinnati Reds. (If you're wanting to know when the team will be at the ballpark throughout the next six months, see my Events Calendar
, where only the home games are entered.)
