The campaign announced on Wednesday that those who donate any amount to his campaign will be entered into a contest to win a seat next to Delaney at the fourth game of the World Series. 

The campaign says the winner will receive two club-level seats to Saturday’s game and that the campaign will pay for airfare and a hotel to attend. Tickets for that level on Saturday are worth more than $1,000.


Delaney tweeted that he was excited to watch the game on Tuesday night and invite a guest to the weekend game.

“Excited to watch the Nats play tonight!" he tweeted. "I’m even more excited because this year, I’m inviting a lucky winner (and their guest) to come watch the World Series with me!”
