Press Release:

(WOODBRIDGE, VA) The Potomac Nationals are pleased to release their 2011 140-game regular season schedule. The P-Nats will begin the defense of their 2010 Carolina League Championship at Pfitzner Stadium on Friday, April 8, 2011 against the Lynchburg Hillcats. The Nationals will be home again for the Fourth of July, and will close out their quest for a second consecutive championship at home over Labor Day Weekend.

Season ticket and mini plans will go on sale soon for a 2011 campaign that promises to be loaded with excitement. P-Nats fans will likely see some of the biggest prospects in both the Nationals organization and all of minor league baseball. Some candidates that may don a P-Nats jersey in 2011 include: first overall pick Bryce Harper, lauded by many as the top hitting prospect in the history of the draft; Nationals’ second-rounder Sammy Solis, who will showcase his talents in the Arizona Fall League; Hagerstown Suns standout Eury Perez, who led the organization with 64 stolen bases; and Stephen Strasburg, whose recovery from Tommy John surgery may well include a rehab stint in Potomac. In their 2010 championship, the P-Nats welcomed ten major league rehabbers, including Ivan Rodriguez, Nyjer Morgan and Jordan Zimmermann.

2010 again showcased the short road between the P-Nats and Washington, as two 2009 P-Nats made their big league debuts this season. Drew Storen and Danny Espinosa realized their major-league dreams in 2010, and both figure to be major pieces of the future in D.C.

Looking to earn their third Carolina League title in four years, the P-Nats will have a decided edge at the end of the 2011 First Half. Potomac plays its final fourteen games before the All Star Break at home. The Nationals will earn that luxury with a span of 13 road games in 16 days in the final week of July and the beginning of August. Immediately following that long road journey, Potomac will be back home for fourteen games at Pfitzner Stadium in 18 days.

Potomac closes out the 2011 regular season as they play host to the Kinston Indians in a three-game series. Stay tuned for more details about season ticket packages, and get ready to Join the Party in 2011 with the Potomac Nationals! For a complete look at the 2011 Schedule, visit our website at
