WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA)--In a statement released Sunday morning, DC Council Chairman Vincent Gray says that the baseball tickets, which were being held by Mayor Fenty's office, were delivered Saturday, May 16.
On his statement, Chairman Gray goes on to say that "The unnecessary delay in giving the council its tickets was an unfortunate distraction from the real and important work of the government."
The Nationals began their season against the Marlins in Florida on April 6 and played their home opener on April 13, 2009.
Chairman Gray concludes by saying, "..I will be working on a permanent solution that will avert this controversy from being repeated again."
