I have gone to probably 10 different Washington Nationals home games in my life. Every single one was against the Phillies. I live in Pennsylvania. I get marketing from the Nationals about ticket plans on a regular basis. Clipped fresh from Outlook this morning was this:
You can order a MIDSEASON FLEX PLAN to see the leading team in the NL East right now. This is really great, because I know it is really hard to get tickets when a team is in first place and has lots of exciting, young players.
How it works: You get to select a series in July, one in August, and one in September/October. That means you can make your own Phillies Three Game Flex Plan. See below the jump.
Notably, this includes the option to get tickets to the FANtastic Finale on October 3, 2012, which is presumably the "Fan Appreciation Day" of yore. I still have a knit cap from last year, which my son and I both wear when we go incognito into Nats Park. You also get a free New ERA cap voucher!
Since Phillies tickets are so hard to come by, even being in last place, I post this only as a public service to other fans, especially those in the NVa, MD, and Central PA areas, since we go to lots of
Nationals Phillies games.
I orphaned my order, since I can't clear my schedule yet, but this is a pretty tempting offer to see the Phillies in their home away from home in DC. Also, it appears that more-favorable terms can be had at StubHub, at least right now, what with front row, aisle seats in the RF Mezzanine level at $25.00 each. But you don't get a Free ERA Cap Voucher!
Still, this is a lot more friendly than the whole, ginned up "Natitude" thing was earlier this year. If Nats fans won't buy tickets, at least let some fans buy them, so the stadium doesn't seem like a half-empty crypt. It's bad for the fisc and it's bad for baseball.
