Nats Offer Free Tickets To Navy Yard Personnel And Families

The Washington Nationals are offering free tickets to Navy Yard personnel and their families for tomorrow's game.

The team's stadium is blocks from the Navy Yard in Southeast D.C. where a gunman killed 12 people Monday before being fatally shot in a gun battle with law enforcement.

The Nationals cancelled their game Monday after the shooting and a stadium parking lot was used as a place to reunite employees from the Navy Yard with their loved ones.

The team is offering up to four complimentary tickets to Navy Yard personnel with a valid ID. The tickets must be picked up in advance Friday at the Nationals' box office from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Tickets will be available while supplies last. The team is playing the Miami Marlins on Saturday.
