Center Field Gate is located a half a block south from the Navy Yard station on Half Street, SE.

If you are on the waiting list, you should still come to the game as we have been able to fulfill all ticket requests on the waitlist. You must be at the pickup area by 7 pm to confirm your waitlist reservation. Waiting list names will be called first at 7:20 pm before given out to those who sign up at the ticket distribution on site.
We are under a ticket use policy and if tickets are not used, we cannot continue in the ticket grant program. Therefore, the ticket pickup policy is not negotiable. If you have any questions, please email Melinda@namidc.org or call 202-538-0006.
NAMI DC’s ticket grant of 150 tickets includes 10 wheelchair accessible (including limited walking) seats. This option will be available on Eventbrite. If you register through another method, please include how many accessible seats are needed. These are available up to 10.
This will be the first of many games NAMI DC will be hosting this season.
