The Nationals' New Rainout Policy Is Only A Problem If You Have A Job (UPDATE)

Update, 5:15 p.m.: The Nationals just announced a change to their policy. The people have spoken and the Washington Nationals have listened to their dissatisfied cries regarding the team's new rainout ticket policy. As we learned following Tuesday night's rainout against the Detroit Tigers, the team had originally reaffirmed its new position by notifying fans holding tickets that they would not be able to exchange them for an equal or lesser priced ticket to a future game of their choosing, based on availability of course, as had been the case in the past. The flawed policy led to a public backlash that became so strong on Wednesday, the team was left with no choice but to overturn it and go back to the more conventional and convenient policy of years past. It didn't used to be like this! Until this season, the Nationals gave fans the option of exchanging their rain checks for tickets to any future game, as long as identically priced seats were available. To make sure those fans get some value for their investment has to be the top priority, though understandably it's a difficult balance to keep as other fans are more concerned with keeping their original seat.
