Bryce Harper takes orders for Washington Nationals season tickets on day off

The Washington Nationals finished the 2012 regular season with 98 wins and made an appearance in the playoffs for the first time since 1981, when they were the Montreal Expos. Their pitching staff is one of Major League Baseball’s best, including names like Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Rafael Soriano, Tyler Clippard, and Drew Storen. The lineup is anchored by Ryan Zimmerman, Ian Desmond, Adam LaRoche, and Bryce Harper, the National League Rookie of the Year and an All-Star in his age 19 season. No matter whose 2013 season preview you read the Nationals can regularly be found as a legitimate contender to represent the senior circuit in this year’s World Series.

Understandably, and with good reason, excitement around the Washington D.C. area has been building since last season’s tough playoff exit in anticipation of what 2013 could hold.

As of late last month the Nationals had sold nearly 20,000 season tickets, up from the estimated 14,000 purchased the previous season. With less than two weeks until Opening Day there’s still time to secure seats at Nationals Park if you’ve been giving it any thought.

Those who called on Tuesday to place their order may spoken to one of baseball’s biggest stars.

After his shift it was off to handle another important matter.

Not a bad day off for young Bryce Harper.
