The Washington Nationals on Monday notified season ticket holders furloughed during the ongoing partial government shutdown that they can delay their monthly payments until the government is reopened, The Washington Post reported.

The organization emailed season ticket holders acknowledging that many fans of the Washington, D.C., baseball team work for federal agencies that have been closed in a government shutdown that is now entering its 17th day.


Affected ticket holders can postpone their monthly payment due Jan. 15, with the additional balance due with the Feb. 15 installment, the Post reported. If the government is still closed on Feb. 1, the Feb. 15 payment can also be delayed.
