Teddy welcomes winning team to town with surprise visits & half-price coupon code

DC Metro commuters got a surprise welcome as Teddy Roosevelt and his racing president cohorts greeted passengers with Nationals ticket coupons at the Metro Center exits Monday.

The racing presidents were promoting the homestand that starts with a Free T-Shirt Tuesday against the Atlanta Braves at Nationals Park and continues with a Mothers Day weekend series against the Florida Marlins. You couldn’t ask for a better weather forecast, and despite losses Saturday and Sunday, the team arrives in town with a winning record and just 1.5 games out of first place in the NL East.

For the upcoming series, the Nationals have again released a half-price coupon code “for Teddy’s friends”: Order at Nationals.com using Coupon Code “TEDDY” (all caps) and get half-price tickets in select seating sections for the 3-game series vs. the Braves starting tonight at Nationals Park. The coupon is valid for online orders only, and gets you half price in the outfield corners ($18), the outfield mezzanine ($15), or the upper infield gallery ($9).

Nationals offer half-price coupon code to Teddy fans to kick off “Screech Week”

The Washington Nationals have once again released a coupon code “for Teddy’s friends”: Order online at Nationals.com using Coupon Code “TEDDY” and get half-price tickets in select seating sections for the series starting Tuesday night vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Washington Nationals T-Shirt TuesdayThe coupon code is valid only for online orders and may be used to get outfield box seats, outfield corner, or mezzanine seats for $15.00 to $18.00 each.

This homestand is your last chance to cheer on the Nationals — and Teddy — in 2009, while getting a glimpse of young September call-ups including hot infielder Ian Desmond.

Tuesday night kicks off “Screech Week” with T-Shirt Tuesday, and a free Screech t-shirt for the first 10,000 fans.

The Screech theme continues with a new promotion on Sunday, September 27. The first 5,000 kids age 12 and under entering Nationals Park will receive a Build-a-Bear Workshop Screech doll — possibly the highest-value promotional item we’ve seen given away at the ball park.

Note also that $5.00 walk-up grandstand tickets have been readily available before the game for the recent series’ vs. the Marlins and Phillies. Grandstand tickets are available before the game at the Nationals ticket windows outside the Center Field Gate.

Teddy’s T-Shirt Tuesday: Mark Your Calendar!

Teddy Roosevelt’s T-shirt Tuesday is right around the corner, and many of you have asked if we’ll be organizing a Roosevelt rooting section at Nationals Park.

It’s a great idea, and so on August 12, we’ll plan to gather before the first pitch at 6:45pm right behind Section 102 on the centerfield plaza. Bring your Teddy Roosevelt signs and wear your Let Teddy Win gear, and we’ll have a little pregame rally for the camera crew. Later, for the big event in the 4th inning, we can gather to cheer close to the presidents race finish line.

Teddy Roosevelt, Washington Nationals Presidents Race LoserFor those who haven’t been paying attention, the Nationals are celebrating every Tuesday night home game with “T-Shirt Tuesdays,” where the first 10,000 fans entering Nationals Park receive a free t-shirt. Each Tuesday’s t-shirt has a different theme on the back, and four of the T-Shirt Tuesdays were set aside to celebrate the Nationals racing presidents. So far, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abe Lincoln have had T-Shirt Tuesdays, and each has won the presidents race on his respective night. Teddy Roosevelt’s big day is next, on August 12. He should have his best effort saved up for the big day.

Plenty of tickets are still available, though with the Mets in town, the best seats are going fast, so order now.

Teddy Nearly Steals T-Shirt Tuesday Victory from Abe

It was free T-Shirt Tuesday tonight at Nationals Park, and the stands were filled with 10,000 Nationals fans wearing free Abe Lincoln t-shirts.

Based on the results from the previous T-Shirt Tuesdays, Abe had to be the prohibitive favorite to run away with tonight’s presidents race, but when the middle of the 4th inning arrived, it was #26 Teddy Roosevelt who jumped out to the big lead, which he extended as he rounded the warning track into the home stretch along the first base line.

But as Teddy approached the finish line, he lost his shoe, tripped and fell. Abe came charging from behind and hurdled over Teddy to claim his 24th presidents race victory this season.

George, Tom, and Abe have now all held serve on their free T-Shirt Tuesdays at Nationals Park. Unfortunately we have to wait another month for Teddy’s big night. Let’s hope his shoes are tied tight on August 12.

Abe’s T-Shirt Tuesday Kicks Off Nationals Homestand

Tuesday night the Washington Nationals return to town to face the Diamondbacks and Astros in a couple of series that promise great weather, light summer traffic, and some big promotions at Nationals Park.

The Nationals are in need of some home cooking after a brutal week which netted as many devastating injuries as team victories. For loyal Nats fans, it seems like an eternity since Nationals Park was packed and rocking for the team’s last home series against the Baltimore Orioles.

Washington Nationals Racing President Abe Lincoln at Nationals ParkRegular readers don’t need to be reminded that this is Abe Lincoln’s T-shirt Tuesday. The first 10,000 fans to enter Nationals Park on Tuesday will receive a free Washington Nationals Abraham Lincoln T-Shirt. Given his recent record, it’s doubtful that Abe needs any help to win the presidents race, but it should be noted that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson won on their free t-shirt nights, so the pressure is now squarely on Abe.

The homsetand will also feature Friday night fireworks, Hispanic Heritage night, and another free movie Saturday night after the game on the Nationals Park HD scoreboard. As for the presidents race, it’s hard to imagine how our racing presidents could top the excitement of the last homestand. After a week that featured kangaroos, president-on-president violence, sabotage, grudge matches, and an “unsanctioned” victory by Teddy Roosevelt, it was good to get a week off. I’m assuming that Teddy has gotten over it as well and will not be working with the grounds crew on Tuesday.

Nationals T-Shirt Tuesday Features Racing Presidents

Washington Nationals T-Shirt TuesdayYesterday’s home game against the Philadelphia Phillies marked the continuation of the Washington Nationals’ T-Shirt Tuesdays, which will run all season at Nationals Park.

Each Tuesday home game throughout the season, the first 10,000 fans arriving at Nationals Park will be handed a free t-shirt compliments of one of the team’s sponsors. The t-shirts have a small Curly W on the front, but a different design on the back each time.

The first T-Shirt Tuesday featured a photo of Nick Johnson sliding, but last night’s shirt was the first of a series that will feature our racing presidents. As you can see, George Washington is posed on the back, with his famous (?) quote “Who’s Your Founding Father?”

George certainly seemed motivated by the occasion, as he led the presidents race from wire to wire, holding off a late comeback by Abraham Lincoln. Could this be a sign of things to come?

Next T-Shirt Tuesday is June 3 vs. the St. Louis Cardinals.
