Christmas in July at Nationals Park this weekend

Just writing the title of this entry makes me wanna run jump into my Santa suit.

On, Dasher! On, Dancer! On, Prancer and Vixen! On, Strasburg! On, Harper! On, Desmond, um ...

Wait, I'm getting confused.

Anyway, this weekend when the Nationals host the Braves, the team will host its annual Christmas In July Toy Drive to benefit the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

Throughout the weekend series, volunteers from the U.S. Marines Corps Reserve will accept donations of new, unwrapped toys for kids of all ages at Nationals Park's center field gates from the time gates open through the end of the second inning.

The toys collected will be distributed to nonprofit organizations and hospital pediatric wards throughout the D.C. metropolitan area.

Nats fans, this is your chance to give a little something back to those who are in need. And what better time to spread a little holiday cheer than when it's 100 degrees outside?

Just a reminder that gates open at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Hope to see you out at the ballpark. Merry Strasmas!
