Monday night was “Dollar Night” at Nationals Park where fans could purchase tickets to the Nationals/Pirates tilt for just a simple buck. Judging from this picture, the promotion was well received by the DC/Metro area.
Question is, until school’s out for the summer and the warmer weather rolls in, why not make every night dollar night in DC? Same goes for places like Pittsburgh, Florida, Tampa, and (gulp) Baltimore. Seems like a rather simple solution to these early season attendance issues. More people at the park means more concessions sold and also creates a much more attractive stadium environment for the players.
But what do I know, I’m just a fan.
