Nationals to launch tornado relief efforts

The Washington Nationals will launch a special initiative to support relief efforts in areas devastated by recent tornadoes. During the team's series against the St. Louis Cardinals and the Baltimore Orioles from June 14 to June 19, a portion of proceeds from tickets purchased at nationals.com/relief will be donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund.

Tickets eligible for the donation include:

* LF/RF Baseline Reserved
* LF/RF Corner
* Outfield Reserved
* Scoreboard Pavilion

In addition, Red Cross volunteers will be on hand during both series to collect donations.
