Nationals celebrate Harper’s derby win with $1 ticket sale

July 17, 2018

After Bryce Harper secured a thrilling comeback win at the 2018 Home Run Derby at his home ballpark, the Washington Nationals kicked off a too-good-to-be-true flash sale.

The Nationals sold tickets for five upcoming home games for $1 until Wednesday at 11:59 p.m., and supplies didn’t last long.

Emails notifying Nationals fans of the flash sale were sent out just before midnight Tuesday.This websitenow shows a message that says, “Tickets are sold out,” meaning fans plundered the supply of tickets in mere hours overnight.

The games that featured $1 tickets were on July 31 and August 1 against the New York Mets and August 2, 4 and 5 against the Cincinnati Reds.

Harper became the third player ever to win the Home Run Derby in his home stadium, after Ryne Sandberg won it at Wrigley Field and Todd Frazier claimed the trophy at Great American Ball Park.
