The Washington Nationals talented, 19-year-old phenom, Bryce Harper, made his Major League debut in Los Angeles this past weekend: 2 for 6 (.333) with 1 RBI. Fans in the DC area have waited almost 2 years to see the right fielder, and 1st overall pick in the 2010 MLB draft, take the field at Nationals Park.

Despite Harper finally playing in DC on Tuesday, the average ticket price to the game versus the Diamondbacks increased only $3 per ticket over the weekend. The $33 per ticket average price is the 7th most expensive Nationals ticket in May. Series against the slow-starting Phillies and cross-town rival Orioles average $56.38 per ticket and $46.91 per ticket respectively.
