The 2012 season was one to remember for the Washington Nationals and their fans. For the first time since 1933 a team from Washington won their division. However, things ended suddenly and cruel;y in the fifth game of the NLDS. It was a horrible way for a season to end—up 6-0, and 7-5 with just 1 out to go—but for a young Nats team it could serve as a learning experience that they can build off of. With budding superstars like Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg the future looks very bright on the Beltway.
During the offseason the Nationals improved their roster by grabbing closer Rafael Soriano away from the Yankees and adding both Dan Haren and Denard Span to what was already a very solid roster.
The success of the team has clearly had its affect on their secondary market ticket prices as well. According to TiqIQ, the current average price for Washington Nationals tickets for the 2013 season is $105/seat, 156% more expensive than last year’s price of $41. This is the biggest year-over-year jump in average ticket price they’ve seen in the three plus years they’ve been tracking data. And while that price will naturally drop a bit as the season approaches, I don’t suspect we’ll be seeing sub-$50 averages at Nationals Park for the foreseeable future. Below, you will see a chart with this year’s top 5 most expensive series in DC:
For those fans looking to catch a Nats game at a bargain price, you’ll likely be looking to attend a game in early April to start. Early season series against the White Sox, Marlins, Reds, Braves and Cardinals round out the top 5 cheapest series, ranging from cheapest to fifth-cheapest respectively. With a $5 get-in price and $59 average price, we recommend seeing the Nationals take on the White Sox in a rare interleague matchup now in April with new MLB scheduling.
It should be another exciting season for the Nationals and their fans, and this time, they shouldn’t have to worry about any innings limits for Strasburg.
