    There are a limited number of tickets being made available to Stephen Strasburg's major league debut.

    The Washington Nationals organization is responding to high demand for tickets to Tuesday's game by offering individual club level suite seats right now.

    The debut of pitcher Stephen Strasburg -- hailed as the franchise savior -- against the Pittsburgh Pirates has made Tuesday's the hottest Nats ticket since "Damn Yankees."

    To capitalize on the interest, the team with the seventh-worst attendance in baseball is selling seats in the Party Suites above left field at $95 apiece and in the Jefferson Suites along first and third base at $145 apiece. Those tickets went on sale at 1 p.m. Monday via www.nationals.com/debut and (202) 675-NATS, with a two-seat minimum per purchase.

    Can't afford the posh leather seats? Well, the team will make another 2,400 tickets available on game day.

    Beginning at 1 p.m. Tuesday, 2,000 $10 standing room only tickets will be available at the main box office at Nationals Park. There is a two-ticket-per-person limit. And 400 $5 grandstand seats will go on sale when gates open at 4:30 p.m.

    Act fast if you want to cram into a stadium that hasn't seen a crowd like this since the pope.
