Stephen Strasburg will be introduced as a Washington National this afternoon in what promises to be the most exciting day at Nationals Park since opening night.
To celebrate the anointment of the young pitcher, the Nationals are offering $1 tickets to the first 1,000 walk up fans between noon and two this afternoon. While that may be an indictment on how terrible Nationals tickets are selling, it is at the least an gesture from the ownership that perhaps things will start to turn around in the way this club is run.
The Nationals also offered $1 tickets to order on Wednesday, and within three hours 6,000 tickets were sold. I’m starting to think this may just be ploy to convince Strasburg we have regularly attending fans.
Everyone is excited for Strasburg’s arrival, EVEN JIM BOWDEN:
