Nats announce ticket policy for Tuesday's rainout

WASHINGTON -- The Nationals announced Wednesday that all fans who purchased tickets for Tuesday night's postponed game against the Tigers will be guaranteed their same seats for Thursday's scheduled 4:05 p.m. ET makeup game, or will retain the option to exchange their tickets for any remaining regular or value home game during the 2013 season, subject to availability.

Due to increased attendance at Nationals Park, "rain check" ticketholders are encouraged to contact the Nationals' ticket office online or by phone to better ensure seating for those games.

Exchanged tickets will be issued from available inventory in the closest pricing category of equal or lesser value to the original seats.

For more information on exchanging tickets purchased through or the Nationals' telephone charge line, fans can call 888.632.NATS (6287).
