More season ticket info

According to WTOP, for those of us who have already plunked down our deposits on season tickets, we'll be getting invoices and seat assignments in mid-January (they'll be mailed between Jan. 7 and Jan. 13).

Also, the Nats will start telemarketing to try to sell season tickets, starting the 3rd week of January, with a goal of getting to about 20K seats.

What'd you end up settling on for tickets? I know you were debating when they first announced the plans.

I'm eager to see what the mini-plans will look like.

Well, the Diamond Box seats turned out to be stupidly expensive, so unless I find someone willing to split the cost with me in the next week (which seems unlikely, particularly since that price tag is about $7400), I'm going for the infield box, which will cost me only about $6600 total. I've got a few friends and family who will occasionally want to go to games, but the second seat will be largely unoccupied, if you want to skip the mini plan... and, if there are particular games you want to go to where I've already got family going, it sounds like it'll be easy for me to get extra tickets. The only exception to that might be the home opener, where I will already end up getting 4 extra tickets, so would have to be entitled to more for that one to happen...

How do you have extra tickets to the opener? Do you have word that extra tickets to the opener will be made available to season ticket holders? I know you discussed this previously as a possibility.

I don't know for sure. It sounded like it was probably the case based on the conversation I had with the ticket office, and I am told that pretty much every other team offers something to their full season holders.

Honestly, I would expect that the offer will be made, but there will be a 1:1 offer... you can buy one extra ticket for each season ticket you have.

Word is, those who are getting tickets through the DC Sports commission already have their seat assignments and invoices.

I guess that's cool. I wonder how many people that is (i.e., how many people are in line in front of me :)
