**Fun Fact: You may be wondering: how many attended on STRASMAS Day? On Tuesday, June 8, 2010 (Game #59), Stephen Strasburg made his much awaited MLB debut (STRASMAS) after recovering from Tommy John surgery. 14 Strikeouts in seven innings. Nationals beat the Pirates 5-2. Attendance 40,315. It was a super-charged crowd that celebrated each strikeout amid a surge of hope for the NATS future. Incredible experience.

How about 2016?
