You know how the Nats always let kids run the bases at Nats Park after Sunday matinees? Turns out the adult chaperones are always asking whether they can run the bases, too. And the answer is nah, not really sir, but those are some sexy stirrups you brought just in case.
Anyhow, if you’re one of the scorned adults, Memorial Day is your shot to get even. This comes from the team’s press release about the upcoming homestand:
As part of the Memorial Day festivities, fans of all ages are invited to “Run the Bases for Military Families.” For the low-price of $20, fans can take advantage of a special holiday ticket deal that includes a Left Field Corner seat, a $10 donation to Hike for Heroes benefitting military families and entry to run the bases after the game. Tickets may be purchased at the Main Box Office. Fans who have already purchased tickets to the Memorial Day game against the Phillies may buy wristbands to run the bases for a $10 donation to Hike for Heroes. Wristbands can be purchased at the Community Relations kiosk behind Section 109 the day of the game.
The press release did not mention whether Mark Lerner would be wearing his full uniform while running the bases, or possibly just his jersey top.
