In partnership with the Washington Nationals, the Newseum presents a new exhibit spotlighting 10 memorable media moments of the team’s first decade in the nation’s capital. “Nationals at 10: Baseball Makes News” brings back memories of some of the most unforgettable moments in Nationals history and explores how the press covers the team’s newsworthy events on and off the field. To celebrate the opening of the exhibit, all Newseum tickets will cost $10 and kids 18 and younger will get in free Aug. 1 and 2, 2015.
The exhibit will feature artifacts from major moments in Nats history, including the bat and ball from Ryan Zimmerman’s walk-off home run in the inaugural game at Nationals Park in 2008, the pitching rubber and rosin bag used by Stephen Strasburg during his record-breaking 14-strikeout major league debut in 2010, the jersey worn by 19-year-old Bryce Harper in 2012 in his first major league game and the home plate used during Jordan Zimmermann’s no-hitter in the last game of the 2014 regular season.
The Nationals will offer a special online ticket discount of up to 25 percent to fans who visit the exhibit at the Newseum. The discount is available beginning July 31 for select games, based on availability.
“Nationals at 10” will be on display through Nov. 29, 2015.
