Mine should be somewhere between $800 and $2000, right?  Not sure if that's quite enough to go on.

Doubt it will be more than $1,200, a bargain.

I’d be really pissed if I had paid all that cash for years to be a SPH in the Delta Club and they took my seats for the most m premier event that the stadium has ever hosted.

I wonder how the Nats will mollify these guys.

They’ll probably move them to the K Street Boxes (which apparently are not selling well) or downgrade em to Diamond Club. A lot of those seats are corporate owned and they don’t care where they do their lobbying sit, just as long as it’s fancy. Companies like Accenture use the seats as employee perks and it wouldn’t be surprising if they decline ASG tickets all together. The price per perk isn’t favorable.

That said, I’ve got diamond club seats and I would be pissed at being moved out of the diamond club. My rep says she’s 90% sure I’ll still have diamond club seats though. They did, however, tell me when I signed my contract that they were not guaranteeing my seat location for ASG and post season specifically because MLB takes first dibs.

At hot stove luncheon. ASG strips will be going out Feb. 8. 14k tix go to MLB. Most full season SHP will get their tickets unless you are in premium seats.

I'm going to keep this poll open until after the prices are announced.

My group mate who went yesterday said that Valerie said the Nats had to really fight MLB to prevent the SPH from getting displaced when MLB took their share of tickets.

That's what she said, all right. We will find out how successful she was when the strips are mailed out.

They are selliing them in strips. That means you have to buy it all. I also have seats in 212 so I'm right next to you.

I think a fair amount of people won't buck up for the strips and that should open up some seats for those who do.

Guess I wasn't clear.  We need for them to designate (print?) a price on each event ticket so that we can pass on the appropriate cost for each individual event to our plan beneficiaries.

I'm fairly certain that individual event prices will be printed on each ticket. Just like post-season tix.

Looks like they did last year.

...at a total cost of $2,485 for the coming season, far less than many other areas in Nats Park...happily the best is not always the priciest, and the priciest is not always the best!

Wait, best seat in the house refers to your season plan location? I always thought you were bragging about your ass.

TBSITH (The Best Seat In The House) refers to the finest view of the diamond anywhere in the park. In-stand concessions were improved last season too.

24-19 in favor of going to the game. I though it would be closer to 70/30 in favor of going but it's more 55/45.
