Washington Nationals welcome 15 millionth fan in franchise history

Earlier today, the Washington Nationals proudly welcomed the 15 millionth fan in franchise history before the team hosted the Miami Marlins at Nationals Park. Sarah McCarty from Fairfax, Va., was designated as the 15 millionth fan to attend a Nationals game in Washington since the franchise relocated from Montreal in 2005.

McCarty was presented with a Jayson Werth autographed jersey during an in-game presentation shown on the NatsHD scoreboard. McCarty will also receive four Lexus Presidents Club tickets along with parking passes and field passes to watch batting practice at an upcoming Nationals home game.

"We are honored to welcome Sarah as the 15 millionth fan to attend a Nationals game since baseball returned to D.C.," Nationals Chief Operating Officer Andrew Feffer said. "We appreciate every fan who comes through our gates at Nationals Park, and look forward to reaching many more milestones as our fan base continues to grow."

The Nationals enter today's game with a 11-4 record and are in sole possession of first place in the National League East. Single game tickets are available at all price levels, while excellent season ticket locations and ticket packages (including mini plans and flex plans) can be purchased for those who don't want to miss a minute of the action.
