Nats Cut Season Ticket Prices One Day After Losing 100th Game

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) - A day after their 100th loss of 2009, the Washington Nationals have announced they're cutting prices on some tickets for 2010.

More than 3,300 seats will have lower season-ticket costs, the team said Friday, and prices will not rise on any non-premium spots at Nationals Park.

The only prices that will increase in 2010 are for high-end season tickets that already have been sold with agreed-to cost hikes.

A 7-6 loss to the Dodgers on Thursday night dropped Washington's record to a majors-worst 52-100. The Nationals finished 59-102 in 2008 and are the first NL club since the 1973-74 Padres to lose at least 100 games in consecutive seasons.

The Nationals rank 13th in the 16-team NL in attendance, averaging about 22,250 fans.
