Nationals players expected to appear at NatsFest

After a two-year hiatus, the Nationals brought back NatsFast and will host it on Jan. 26 at the Washington Convention Center, with doors opening at 12 p.m. for general admission ticket holders. The event is designed to generate interest for the upcoming season, and will include meet-and-greet and autograph sessions with players, games, food, stands selling team gear and tickets and more.

Tickets cost $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12, with discounts for 2013 season ticket holders. For more information, check the Nationals Web site.
