Washington Nationals Ticket Information

Bringing America’s national pastime back to the nation’s capital, the Washington Nationals are both one of the oldest and newest names in Major League Baseball. Since moving to town in 2005, the Nats are vying to win the first World Series for the District since Calvin Coolidge was president, and they know how to make it an exciting quest along the way. Whether you pick up tickets to a home game in Nationals Park or to catch the team on the road, you can get your chance to see what all the hype is about.

An International Legacy

The franchise got its start as the Montreal Expos in 1969, an expansion team that brought the National League into Canada. In 35 years playing north of the border, the team fielded some of the best young talent in baseball, introducing players like Gary Carter, Tim Raines, and Andrés Galarraga, but their best performance came when they finished within 2 runs of the pennant in 1981.

When they moved south in 2005, the team became Washington’s fourth Major League team and the first to relocate into the District; the city had gone without since the American League’s Washington Senators moved away in 1972. Rather than adopt the old name—which sat poorly with some Washingtonians, as they don’t have voting representation in Congress—the team looked back to the District’s first 19th-century franchise and brought the Nationals back to town.

Red, White & Blue

After years of work to rebuild Washington baseball from the ground up, the Nationals put together a team of contenders around players like Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg, and Daniel Murphy. They’ve emerged as tough interleague rivals for the Baltimore Orioles and regular contenders in the the National League East, topping the division 4 times between 2012 and 2017 in their quest for their first league pennant. They’ve made a visit to the ballpark one of the great things to do in Washington, D.C., so pick up your Nationals tickets and see the action for yourself.
