To celebrate the return of Major League baseball to the Southwest and near-Southeast community, the Nationals are inviting local residents out to Neighborhood Night at Nationals Park on Thursday, April 19, at 7:05 p.m.
The team will honor the vibrant spirit of the neighborhood by featuring local residents in various pregame activities, including throwing out the first pitch, delivering the lineup card and greeting the players as they take their positions on the field.
“We’re excited to kick off the start of the 2012 season by welcoming local residents back to Nationals Park for Neighborhood Night,” Nationals Director of Community Relations Israel Negron said.
As part of their commitment to engaging the neighborhood surrounding Nationals Park, the team supports community-based programs and provides opportunities for local youth throughout the year, all in an effort to further strengthen the connection between the team and the community.
