I’ve got another jersey number switcheroo to report.
Wilson Ramos will make the switch from No. 3 to No. 40, which was his number in winter ball, according to his publicist.
Ramos had only three home runs last season while wearing No. 3, as his torn right ACL and meniscus cut short his season. I bet he wouldn’t mind too much if he hit 40 home runs this season wearing No. 40.
The Nationals announced today that single-game tickets for this season will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 10 a.m.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.nationals.com/tickets, by calling 888-632-NATS (6287) or by visiting the Nationals Park main box office.
