Annual Equipment Drive at Nationals Park is now virtual!

August 14-20, 2021

The annual in-park equipment drive is now online, making it easier for fans to contribute and help keep kids in the game. In lieu of bringing equipment to the ballpark, tax-deductible contributions from fans will allow local programs to purchase new equipment. Proceeds from the Virtual Equipment Drive will support the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy (DC), Rockville Baseball Association (MD), and Mason District Little League (VA).

Quality equipment can be really challenging for certain families to come by. With support from Nationals players and fans, local programs can purchase equipment that allows our kids to get on the field feeling confident and ready to play ball.
