Reasons to Catch a Washington Nationals Baseball Game



An action-packed schedule, exclusive ticket discounts, home runs and Racing Presidents add up to one exciting baseball experience in the District.

The Washington Nationals, who have four National League East titles, five postseason appearances and a World Series championship since coming to DC in 2005, are one of the city's main attractions throughout the spring and summer. The sheer joy of watching pro baseball players compete is a big reason to catch a game, but it’s not the only one.

An exciting schedule

The Washington Nationals’ schedule delivers top-notch matchups, including home series against top teams like the 2021 World Series champion and division rival Atlanta Braves (June 13-15, July 14-17, Sept. 26-28), the St. Louis Cardinals (July 29-31) and Fernando Tatis and the San Diego Padres (Aug. 12-14). And if you thought the National Mall’s Independence Day fireworks display was something to behold, wait until you see the sparks fly during the Nats' July Fourth matchup against the Miami Marlins.
 

Note that backpacks and bags that exceed 16"x16"x8"are now prohibited inside Nationals Park. Make sure to read the full Nationals bag policy before heading to the game.

Amazing food

DC is officially a culinary capital, receiving the Michelin Guide treatment each year. We’ll go one better and say Nationals Park is the best ballpark for food in the MLB. Down a Ben’s Chili Bowl half-smoke, DC’s signature take on a hot dog, inhale a burger and shake from Shake Shack or try plenty of other delicious bites. Check out our full guide of where to eat and drink at Nationals Park.

The Racing Presidents

Held in the middle of the fourth inning, the GEICO Presidents Race features a footrace with Mount Rushmore all-stars Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and the oft luckless Teddy Roosevelt.

Kids run the bases for free, Pups in the Park and more promotions

The Nats have a robust promotions schedule featuring exciting events for the whole family. Bring your canine to Pups in the Park, or catch a Sunday regular season home game where kids between the ages of 4 and 12 can run the bases for free. The details: each child must be accompanied by an adult, participants must exit the ballpark through the Right Field Gate, the line forms outside of the park on the sidewalk along First Street starting in the seventh inning.
