WASHINGTON -- The Nationals will host the Yankees in an exhibition game at Nationals Park on March 29 at 2:05 p.m. ET. Tickets to the game will be included in full, half and partial season-ticket plans. In addition, tickets to the exhibition will be included in select mini and flex plans to be released in the coming weeks before single-game tickets go on sale to the general public. Season-ticket plans may be purchased at nationals.com/2013 or by calling 202-675-NATS (6287). A portion of the proceeds from the Yanks-Nats game will benefit the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, a charitable organization committed to improving the lives of children throughout the Washington Capital Region.

In addition to the exhibition game, the Nationals' 2013 schedule includes 81 home dates, beginning with Opening Day on April 1 vs. Miami. The schedule is highlighted by an attractive slate of weekend visits from the Braves, Cubs, Dodgers, Mets, Phillies and Twins. The Twins, whose lineage began in Washington as the original Senators, return to the nation's capital June 7-9 for the first time since 1971. The annual Battle of the Beltways Series between the Nationals and Orioles will also continue for an eighth consecutive season, with each club hosting a pair of contests over a four-game span, May 27-30. The neighbors square off for the first time during a Memorial Day contest at Nationals Park. After two tilts in the District, the teams move north to Oriole Park for the final two matchups of the series.
