From an email:

“The Postseason excitement is so contagious, even our Spinosaurus is showing his Natitude! This fierce fan is currently on display outside of the National Geographic Museum, along M Street. He is also the cover model of the October issue of National Geographic magazine.

The National Geographic Museum will be offering free same day admission to Postseason ticket holders on game day. “

From a press release:

“Mayor Vincent C. Gray and the D.C. Council announced today that the District’s city hall, the John A. Wilson Building, will go red in support of the Washington Nationals’ Major League Baseball playoff run. Beginning tonight, Wednesday, October 1, the District will illuminate the building with red exterior lighting for as long as the Nationals remain in the playoffs. Mayor Gray and the D.C. Council turned the building red the last time the Nationals were in the playoffs in 2012.

“As a lifelong baseball fan, I am extremely proud of the Nats. They’ve had an amazing season with some incredible individual performances – but what impresses me the most is how they play as a team. I’m excited to cheer them on all the way to the District’s first World Series win since 1924,” said Mayor Gray. “And starting tonight, we’re going to turn the Wilson Building red to show everyone that the District is behind them 100 percent.”

The Nationals, as champions of the National League East Division, will play Game 1 of their National League Division Series against the winner of tonight’s National League Wild Card play-in game on Friday, October 3 at Nationals Park. Mayor Gray is scheduled to attend.”

YES!!! Let’s keep it going through October. Congrats Nats!

From an email:

“The Washington Nationals released the following statement this evening after clinching the NL East Division Championship:

“We are so proud of this organization,” said Ted Lerner, Managing Principal Owner of the Washington Nationals. “Watching them clinch their second NL East Division Championship in three years means so much to our fans, our city and our family. Mike Rizzo and Matt Williams should be commended for building and leading a championship club. Tonight, we celebrate this milestone but realize that there is still work to do and goals to accomplish. We are looking forward to the possibilities that lie ahead.”

From an email:

“The Washington Nationals announced today that tickets for potential Postseason National League Division Series games at Nationals Park will go on sale to the general public on Monday, September 22 at 10 a.m. A maximum of four tickets for each game may be purchased either online at nationals.com/postseason or by calling 888.632.NATS(6287) on a first come, first served basis. Tickets will be unavailable for purchase at the box office.

In addition, the Nationals Park Box Office will sell a limited number of Standing Room Only tickets the day of each postseason game, subject to availability. Grandstand seating will not be available for purchase day-of-game during the 2014 Postseason. In the event the Nationals qualify, National League Championship Series and World Series single game tickets will go on sale in the coming weeks, based on availability.

Season Plan Holders and NATS PLUS members received information regarding their opportunity to purchase single game Postseason tickets earlier this month. Fans only have a few more days to place a deposit on 2015 full season ticket plans and receive 2014 Postseason ticket purchase priority before tickets go on sale to the general public.

The Nationals could secure a Postseason berth as early as this week, as the team’s magic number to clinch the National League East is four.”
