Baseball is in the air, and the WeLoveDC blog and the Nationals are kicking off the season by sponsoring a special event for fans of the Nats, the racing presidents, and of course, Teddy Roosevelt.
On Wednesday, April 21, with the Rockies in town for the Nats’ first extended homestand, we’ll be going behind the scenes for a private tour and pre-game rally, plus prizes, sign-making, and an opportunity to go down on the field before the game.
WeLoveDC has packaged all this into a $40 ticket, which also includes entrance to the game, a $10 food voucher, and a seat amid the Teddy Roosevelt cheering section in section 237 by the scoreboard bar.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
5:30 p.m. Tour of the stadium. We’ll go behind the scenes, tour the press box, and four lucky raffle winners will get to go down to field level.
6:00 p.m. Pre-game rally, with sign-making materials, prizes, and Nats trivia.
7:05 p.m. First pitch
Tickets went on sale today at eventbrite and will sell out, so order yours now.

ABC News white house political correspondent Karen Travers was at Nationals Park this week, trying to get to the bottom of why Teddy never wins.
Check out the story today at 3:00pm on ABC News Now (Comcast, Fios, and RCN) or on the ABC World News Webcast. The companion story is up now on ABCNews.com.

They say you’re nobody in DC until you’ve been covered by The Reliable Source column in The Washington Post. Teddy Roosevelt’s recent disappearance drew the attention of the Post’s Roxanne Roberts, who in today’s paper writes about the Nats failure to let Teddy win, and calls Teddy’s reported injury “a classic Washington coverup.”
This barely 24 hours after ABC News White House political correspondent Karen Travers was seen snooping around Nationals Park, preparing a story about Teddy scheduled to air tomorrow.
The focus of DC political scandal 90 years after his death? I think Teddy Roosevelt would have been proud.

The forecast calls for sunny skies as the Washington Nationals return to Nationals Park Labor Day weekend to kick off the penultimate homestand of the season. Beginning Friday night, the Nationals plan to reward loyal fans with “Fan Appreciation Month” throughout September.
Fans in attendance can anticipate a large number of “Random Acts of Red”, including gifts of Nationals merchandise, tickets, and invitations to watch batting practice from the field, plus a packed promotional calendar, highlighted by 3 T-Shirt Tuesdays, Friday night fireworks, “Kids Run the Show” this Sunday, and tomorrow’s first-ever Pups in the Park promotion, in which $5 gets Fido into the Park with his very own seat. I think I’ve got to bring the camera for that.
My calendar is circled for Thursday, Sept. 10 — the night the ticket has my picture on it holding up a Let Teddy Win Rally Sign. Season ticket holders, if you don’t want your ticket stub, I’ll happily take the souvenir.

It was indeed a busy day for the Washington Nationals racing presidents. While Nats fans were lining up for the opening day festivities at Nationals Park, the racing presidents were across town, further cementing their new roll as DC-area icons.
For the third straight year, George, Tom, Abe, and Teddy were invited to participate in the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
President Obama still hasn’t been to Nationals Park, but perhaps the cheers of “Let Teddy Win” on the White House lawn clued him in to the unique fan experience we have going on South Capitol Street.

Today our Washington Nationals racing presidents claimed their place as part of a grand Washington DC institution, the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
Accompanied by Nationals mascot Screech, our four “Rushmore” presidents George, Tom, Abe, and Teddy made it back to the White House to entertain and pose for photos with children who had come to participate in this age-old Washington, DC tradition.
More impressive still is the observation that the Let Teddy Win movement has reached the highest halls of power. As reported over at Nats 320, the racing presidents appeared early Monday morning and were greeting on the White House lawn by cheers of “Let Teddy Win! Let Teddy Win!” How cool is that?
President Bush is scheduled to be in attendance on Sunday night for the opening of Nationals Park. Now that he’s had a preview, let’s hope he’s caught on and joins the cheers for Teddy Roosevelt when the 4th inning comes around.

Two days after I tweaked Barry Svrluga’s photoblogging, he has taken notice of our little Let Teddy Win fan gear site. I don’t know whether I’d qualify today’s post at the Nationals Journal as an endorsement, but the Washington Post certainly gets a ton of exposure that lit up my in box this morning.
