(RNN) – Brett Kavanaugh is apparently a really, really big fan of the Washington Nationals.

Financial disclosure forms for Kavanaugh, whom President Donald Trump announced Monday as his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, show that he incurred tens of thousands of dollars of credit card debt to buy Nationals tickets over the last decade, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Kavanaugh got into debt buying Nationals season tickets and playoff tickets for himself and friends.

Kavanaugh reported in 2016 that he'd racked up between $60,000 and $200,00 across three credit cards and a personal loan.

By 2017, the credit card debt and the loan were either paid off or had fallen below reporting requirements, according to The Post.

Shah said Kavanaugh's friends had paid him back for their share of the tickets, and that the Supreme Court nominee is no longer buying tickets for those friends.

Shah specified that some of Kavanaugh's debt was to pay for home improvements.

The Post reported that Kavanaugh had also disclosed between $60,000 to $200,000 in debt across three credit cards and a loan in 2006.
