Everyone remembers how the Nationals got last season started on the wrong foot when then-team president Stan Kasten decided to encourage Phillies fans to travel down to Nationals Park and buy tickets for opening day, right? Luckily, it looks like that has not happened for this year's opening day game against the Atlanta Braves.

That's a screenshot of the Nationals' individual ticket page for Thursday's game, and it's looked like that for the past few days. This means that all of the tickets for opening day have been purchased, and it didn't require a public plea to Braves fans to come out to the stadium. Obviously, this isn't EVERY ticket, since the team will allocate some for last-minute ticket packages that would probably be released in the coming days, but it's certainly a large majority of them.

So yes, this means that progress has been made. We've reached the point where we no loner need to market specifically to opposing fanbases. Baby steps, Natstown. Baby steps.
