Washington Nationals introducing new “K Street” section

The Washington Nationals announced via Twitter that they are introducing a new special ticket package for the final Friday home game of each month entitled “K Street,” named both for the D.C. street and the absurd amount of strikeouts the Nats’ pitching staff puts up on a daily basis.

The ticket, priced at $39, will include a t-shirt, a K Card, and a seat in section 108 down the left-field line.

It appears that it won’t just be one t-shirt for the entire season, but the shirt instead will change month-by month. This month’s shirt features Max Scherzer with the intersection of 31st and (backwards) K street (which, for you D.C. geography buffs, is right near the Georgetown Harbor), per Nationals on Reddit.

[ed. note - “It should also be noted that the Nationals took Scherzer to 20th and K for a photo op after his 20-strikeout performance last season.”]

The Nats are most likely going for a “King’s Court” type experience that the Mariners provide whenever Felix Hernandez starts — hundreds of K-card brandishing fans all dressed identically, cheering at the top of their lungs. Moreover, section 108 was around where the Seven Line Army invaded last season, bringing lots of (annoying) Mets fans with them.

Although it’s late notice, “K-Street” is a good idea that was long overdue. Whether it catches on the first time around, we’ll see, but it would not be shocking to see this become a long-time part of the ballpark.
