Hours of Operation (April - September)Game Days:
The right to delay the start of a game rests with the home club. Once both team managers meet with the home plate umpire and exchange lineup cards, the right to determine whether the game will be interrupted or terminated is at the discretion of the Umpire-in-Chief. Under the provisions of the Official Playing Rules, the Umpire-in-Chief has sole authority to determine whether and when play is halted, when play will be resumed and whether and when a game will be terminated due to bad weather or unsafe playing conditions.
In the event a regulation game as defined by Major League Baseball is not played due to weather, Act of God, or any other reason, then guests should retain their tickets until rescheduling information and ticketing policies for that game are announced. Tickets for the originally scheduled game may serve as rain checks and/or provide admission to the rescheduled game. Ticket holders are advised to check the Washington Nationals website at nationals.com, local newspapers, or Nationals media affiliates for rescheduling information and ticketing policies. Policies vary based on the situation. Complimentary ($0.00 value) tickets are not exchangeable for any rainout, postponement or cancellation circumstance. Any game suspended after five innings (or 4 ½ innings if the Nationals are ahead) is considered a complete game and will not be rescheduled.
The Washington Nationals will make every effort to play scheduled games.
