NATSCSMGR they can't possibly pay you enough to make you come here and read our bickering thoughts!

Thanks for the answers you've provided!

I heartily agree, it's nice to have a rep that hasn't run away screaming. Appreciate you checking in.

So...while we're asking questions again....any news about Fanfest this year?

Thanks for your question! There are many new improvements that are currently underway at the ballpark and we are currently looking at several different options regarding that space. Nothing I can talk about at this time, (Sorry) but hopefully I'll be able to share some new and exciting news in the next few weeks!

thanks!

Are you building a secret weapons facility? What's with the secrecy? Should we just wait til opening day and see for ourselves?

HA! To answer your questions; Ummmmm no,. not that I'm aware of!  #2: Sworn to secrecy! #3 Not necessarily, but I don’t produce Press Releases, so unfortunately you’ll have to wait!   8)

Thank you, you are correct! Thankfully there aren't too many on this board! (And for the record, I'm a man....)

Thats a good question! I'll walk down to the Marketing Department tomorrow and see what I can find out! If I find out anything interesting I'll post it right away! As far as "running away" from the board, only time will tell! Haha!

Why does it have to be one or the other?  Fireworks + subhorn is the way to go!



Your finest post, sir!

Why did they get rid of the fireworks in the first place? Was it just to try the subhorn out? Money? Or was there complaints about the fireworks? Either way, I agree entirely, subhorn + fireworks would be real nice!

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that the locals complained about the noise.

I'd like to see fireworks on Friday nights. Otherwise, I don't care about them, really.

Why stop there, how about free beer too?

FIREWORKS UPDATE:
It sounds like there will be several Fireworks Fridays this season, but sadly "Free Beer Night at the Park" didnt make the cut...  8)

Looks like the Chief (Cordero in this case) would like to throw out the first pitch at a Nats game this year.  Any chance the team makes this happen?  Sure would be nice to have him be the first of the new Nats to have a night in dedicated in his honor.

Another thing, how about painting over one of those columns that are inexplicably decorated with other team's stars with a picture of Chad?

Does the team have an official Twitter hashtag?  Based on a review of the six Twitter accounts associated with the team that I'm aware of there is no consistency on whether #Nats or #Nationals is used.  This leads to mixed use by the local and national media.  I have the #Nats search bookmarked as it seems to get the most use, but that means I miss stuff posted using #Nationals.  In both cases there is often a good deal of concurrent usage of the tags, #nationals gets used quite often for a week at a time when there are national competitions, and #nats is a tweebonics term.  I'd suggest creating a new official hashtag for use by the team's accounts and suggested for use by the media and fans, something that would be unique for the team such as #NatsBB, #DCNats, or even #Nats69.

Official Team Accounts:
@Nationals - mostly #Nats one #Nationals
@NatMobile - neither
@ScreechtheEagle - a mix of both
@NationalsPR - a mix of both
@NatsTix - #Nats
@Teddy26Nats - mostly #Nats some #Nationals

Media Accounts:
@MASNNationals - mostly #Nationals some #Nats
@NatsJournal - a mix of both
@MarkZuckerman - mostly #Nats some #Nationals


The @Nationals account has started using the # District9 hash tag which sounds good except that it has already been taken by a scifi movie, can you remind the PR staff that the whole purpose of a hash tag is that it is supposed to be unique?

There is some talk in Florida of turning publicly funded ballparks and arenas into homeless shelters on non game nights.  Since the city has been kind enough to provide such a nice ballpark for the Nats, has there been any discussion of making Nats Park available to the less fortunate on nights when the team isn't playing at home?  Certainly would be a nice gesture in the cold winter while the ballpark sits unused.

Split off seating and vantage point questions to a separate thread, this thread is really for questions to the team rep.

Also, a little trick is to go from there up one level if you want Bens without the big line.

True, that section is good if you don't mind walking around a bit.  Another nice thing about that area, if you don't like distractions, is that there aren't man "beer man here" vendors coming through.

Would it be possible to have a "town hall" with Nats Management?
