We love love love having the Potomac Nationals practically in our backyard, and with opening weekend coming up THIS WEEKEND, I want to share some details with you!
I want to admit right up front that I absolutely LOATHE watching baseball on TV, but I love a game in person! It’s so much fun to get the family out and cheer from the grandstand! I am a total sucker for the wave, and I want it to go as long as possible. Yeah, I’m that person doing it one more time than everyone else. So what?
We take our whole family to the 4th of July game (hint: buy your tickets NOW) every year. We even met a preschool teacher that way! They’ve got a great game followed by an awesome fireworks show. Doesn’t get any more American than that! I also love that the stadium is now non-smoking in all seated sections. (When I was little, you had to reserve early to get in the “family section” for that!)
I also love this guy:
My kids think Uncle Slam is just about the coolest thing on the planet. I haven’t figured this out yet. That little blonde guy? I have absolutely ZERO pictures of him with the Easter Bunny (and he loves bunnies) because he thinks the Bunny is terrifying. Uncle Slam? AWESOME. Your individual results with that may vary, but it works for us!
The P-Nats also run some great promotions. Check it out! We especially love an inexpensive mid-week game (see the Monday/Tuesday games) and we also love Scout Night!

Also, be sure to check out the details on Uncle Slam’s Reading Program! Students at your school can read books to earn free Potomac Nationals tickets! This is a really great alternative if your school has banned the pizza reading promotions due to healthy eating restrictions.
We’ve also participated in the Scout Nights where the Nationals also offer camping on the outfield! We had a really great time. Not much sleep, not much quiet, but a really great time!
