Nationals bribing fans with half-priced tickets for All-Star votes


In an effort to get Anthony Rendon in the All-Star Game, the Washington Nationals are bribing their fans. Scott Allen of The Washington Post gives us the story of fans being able to get tickets half-priced, if they vote for Rendon.

Fans who vote for Rendon 21 or more times on the online ballot are eligible to receive 50 percent off the regular full price of up to two tickets to one of 9 home games for the Nationals, including their Sept. 8-10 series against the Atlanta Braves.

While Rendon has said he would not campaign for himself, his teammates and front office are. #VoteRendon t-shirts and tweets have been flooding in efforts to get Rendon in the All-Star Game.

That’s a lot of clicking for Rendon, but half-priced tickets are certainly a big incentive.
