The Washington Nationals’ opening-day game is one month away. It is set for Monday, April 1, at 1:05 PM against the Miami Marlins. Individual tickets—for opening day and other home games—went on sale Thursday. They range in price from $5 to $300 and “are almost sold out and going quickly,” according to a team spokesperson.

The Nats are mum about what’s planned for the first 2013 home game for the NL East champs. For example, will Stephen Strasburg take the mound? Who will throw out the opening pitch? This much we know: The new racing president, William Howard Taft (known around Nats Park as “Bill”), will make his debut, trying to beat Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Teddy Roosevelt.
