The Nationals gave season-ticket holders an opportunity to enter the ballpark early the last two nights, watch the home team taking batting practice for a change, get autographs and win prizes. It was a nice move by the club, which has come under fire by some for not marketing the team well enough. That may or may not be true, but give the Nationals credit for rewarding their most loyal fans with a nice little promotion.
