Phillies in DC: A quick update on the Phillies first April series in D.C. We've got a 50 ticket allotment for both the Monday (Nats' home opener) and the Thursday games.

They will be $20 and $18, respectively. So keep your eyes peeled for that. Also of note, if more than 50 people end up wanting to go per game, there will be more tickets made available, but you may have to sit in the section over or something. We'll do our best.
