All fans who purchase a ticket to Youth Baseball and Softball Days will be invited to participate in a pregame parade around the warning track. The first 1,000 kids to arrive in line for the parade wearing their Little League jerseys will receive a pair of Nationals socks and a set of Nationals eye black stickers, courtesy of Inova Children's Hospital. In addition, kids 12 & under are invited to run the bases following the game.

Baseball Tomorrow Fund - Equipment Donation on May 20:

Thousands of kids in our community do not play baseball or softball because they cannot afford equipment. You can help by donating new or used equipment at Nationals Park on Sunday, May 20. Collection will begin at 11:00 AM and run until the end of the third inning outside of the Center Field Gate.
