The Washington Nationals are hosting their 5th Annual UVA Day on Friday, June 14 when they take on the Arizona Diamondbacks! Join the UVA Club of Washington, DC and fellow alumni, students, parents, and fans as we cheer on former UVA baseball stars Ryan Zimmerman (CLAS ’06) and Sean Doolittle (CLAS ’08), Racing President Tom, and our Washington Nationals! Prior to the first pitch at 7:05 p.m., we’ll be having a pregame social at our partner bar Mission Navy-Yard, directly across the street from the stadium, where you can mingle with other DC Hoos over a quick bite and a drink, and prepare for the game by picking up some UVA swag.

Join us and show your Wahoo pride at Nationals Park and the Pre-Game Social at Mission! Game tickets are limited and can be purchased through the Nationals website using this UVA-exclusive link. Tickets to the pregame social are required for admission to the pregame event ($10 for adults, free for children 18 and under).

Pregame Social tickets include:
– Complimentary appetizers
