Take Us Out to the Ball Game

Sun Aug 3, 2014 - 1:30 p.m.

Hear the acoustical signature of bat meeting ball; observe the aerodynamics of curves, sliders and changeups; analyze the nutritional values of chili dogs, gelato and, of course, Cracker Jack; or just exchange your science writing hat for a Nats cap and enjoy the game.

DCSWA has reserved a block of seats for members, families and friends for a group outing to Nationals Park.

The details:

Date: Sunday, August 3, 2014
Game time: 1:35 p.m.
Versus: Philadelphia Phillies
Cost: $26 per seat (includes all taxes and fees) If you're worried it's a little high, we've secured great seats --  third base side, directly opposite the giant scoreboard. We'll be in the shade in the afternoon and will have an excellent view of the field.

Bonus: Before the game, two Nats will provide autographs, and after the game kids can run the bases.
