Washington Nationals season tickets and 20-game mini-plans will go on sale today.

Season ticket prices for most sections of RFK Stadium remain the same as last year with a few exceptions, mostly in the upper deck and deep along the lines.

For example, lower-deck field box seats down the lines have risen from $35 to $40. Upper-deck seating behind home plate has risen from $13 to $14. The Diamond Club and the Field MVP sections directly behind the plate are sold out.

Single-game tickets are expected to go on sale during the first week of March. That’s when fans will see considerable price increases and pay “premium” rates for marquee matchups against the Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, and Chicago Cubs. Fans can expect to pay an additional $5 to $10 more a ticket for those games.

Those that purchase the 41-game or 20-game packages will have the premium games included at no extra cost. Group tickets (25 or more) also go on sale today.

Meanwhile, the Nationals reached 2006 contract agreements yesterday with first baseman Larry Broadway, third baseman Kory Casto, right-handed relievers Travis Hughes and Darrell Rasner and left-handed pitching prospect Mike Hinckley.

Of these signings, Hughes and Rasner were called up last season. Hughes, whom the Nationals claimed off waivers from the Texas Rangers on April 7, went 1-1 with a 5.54 ERA in 14 games in two stints with the Nationals after being initially assigned to Class AAA New Orleans. Rasner went 0-1 with a 3.68 ERA in five games (one start) for the Nationals during a September promotion when rosters expanded.

Broadway, Casto and Hinckley are among the organization’s top 10 prospects.
