NOTE: Updated to include all dates and giveaway items

Washington Nationals Commemorative Tin

Washington Nationals 10 year anniversary logo 20152015 marks the tenth anniversary of baseball’s return to Washington, and the milestone will be the centerpiece of the team’s marketing campaign, with season-long promotions celebrating ten years of memorable moments. Fans will be encouraged to use the hashtag #Nat10nals in social media throughout the year.

The theme will be highlighted on what the team is calling “10-Year Tuesdays,” one Tuesday each month that will feature special guests, pregame ceremonies, and a collectible keepsake for the first 10,000 fans. The giveaways collectively will fit inside a commemorative tin, which will be the giveaway for the first 25,000 fans on opening day.

The tin features a new 10 year anniversary logo that will also appear on jerseys worn by Nationals players and coaches, official game balls, bases and lineup cards throughout the season.

Five bobbleheads will be distributed commemorating great moments in Nationals history. As was announced last week, these and five other major giveaway items were being revealed by fans as part of the Ten Days of Teddy promotion.

Commemorative items include a Livan Hernandez bobblehead commemorating the Nationals’ first game, a Ryan Zimmerman bobblehead commemorating the first game at Nationals Park, a Stephen Strasburg bobblehead commemorating his 14-strikeout major league debut, a Jayson Werth bobblehead commemorating his playoff game 4 walk-off from 2012, and a Jordan Zimmermann bobblehead commemorating his 2014 no-hitter. Other items revealed include a commemorative mini lineup card from the 2005 inaugural game, a commemorative coin and a bottle stopper that Camillo says will be perfect for wine bottles. Camillo told the crowd that a sixth bobblehead is still a possibility.

2015 promotions will also include Nationals commemorative nesting dolls featuring Max Scherzer, Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman, Chad Cordero, and Frank Robinson. Ten lucky fans will randomly receive unique handmade “golden ticket” dolls that are more elaborate and contain ten dolls each.

Last year’s Jayson Werth Garden Gnome was the most popular giveaway in team history, and so another gnome giveaway is planned featuring Anthony Rendon. Camillo teased that a unique new giveaway scheduled for August 5 could top the garden gnome in fan popularity. UPDATE: That item will be a Jayson Werth Chia Pet. Camillo said this is the first baseball giveaway of its kind.

Saturday, May 9 will be dedicated to the inaugural 2005 team and its Hall of Fame skipper Frank Robinson. Robinson will return to Nationals Park where he’ll be joined by former players and special guests, and watch as his name is added to the Nationals Park ring of fame.

By popular demand, the team will also introduce “theme nights,” an idea borrowed from other teams an reportedly the subject of frequent suggestions by fans. July 19 will be Star Wars day, in which fans will receive an R2D2 drink coozie. Here’s guessing there will be more than one wookie showing up wearing Werth’s #28 jersey.

The known dates are on the schedule below. Additional dates Nats postgame live concerts will be updated here as they are announced:

Nationals Promotion/Giveaway Schedule for 2013

The Washington Nationals 2013 game day promotion/giveaway schedule is out, including three bobblehead nights and four Saturday night post-game concerts, up from the three highly successful concert nights last season.

Based on past years’ choices, it’s a good bet we’ll see the team’s first bobbleheads for stars Bryce Harper and Gio Gonzalez and new centerfielder Denard Span (unless new racing president William Howard Taft gets the nod).  We’ll update the schedule below as soon as confirmed.  Additional giveaways will include a cap, t-shirt, pilsner cup, lunch tote, baseball tote, kids arm sleeve, team poster, and backpack.

UPDATE: Retiring manager Davey Johnson got the nod for Bobblehead #3 behind Harper and Gonzalez (see below), and the concert performers have been announced (Blues Traveler, Thompson Square, Gavin DeGraw, and Montgomery Gentry).

The popular Pups in the Park promotion, in which a section is reserved for canine guests, returns to Nationals Park for four dates in April, May, June, and September. The team has also added food promotions, including $1 Hot Dog, $1 Ice Cream, and $5 beer + peanuts nights.

It’s a robust promotion schedule, with only a few oddities (a cap that’s only for adults, a poster giveaway on post-game concert night).  Families should note that Kids cannot run the bases after the late Sunday start on August 11.

UPDATE: Here is the Nationals Promotion Schedule 2014, in which the number of bobbleheads will triple

Nationals Promotion/Giveaway Schedule for 2012

The Washington Nationals have released details of the 2012 game day promotion/giveaway schedule, including three bobblehead nights and three Saturday night post-game concerts, which were clearly added based on the success of last September’s post-game concert by Lifehouse.

Highlights this season include bobblehead nights for Michael Morse, Stephen Strasburg, and Ryan Zimmerman. The “fan’s choice” bobblehead has apparently been retired. Additional giveaways will include an opening day cap, a replica truck, a beer stein, and several additional shirts and caps.

The promo items were revealed as part of the team’s merchandising for the new 5 Game Flex Plans. The full promotional schedule, including events and celebrations such as Friday Night Fireworks, Pups in the Park, and Ladies Night will be released later this month. We’ll share those as soon as they are available

Nationals Promotion/Giveaway Schedule for 2011

Washington Nationals 2011 individual game tickets go on sale to the public next Thursday, March 3, and while the Nationals game day promotion/giveaway schedule is not final, many of the details are now available on Nationals.com.

Highlights this season include bobblehead nights for Jayson Werth, Ian Desmond, and a 3rd “fan choice” which will be determined by an online and in-the-park poll. The team has also expanded the highly popular “Pups in the Park” promotion. The perennial sellout event, in which dog owners can buy tickets to bring their pets to the game, has been scheduled for three games during the 2011 season.

In addition to the known dates and giveaways listed below, Friday Night Fireworks, Signature Sundays, and Sunday Kids Run the Bases programs will return on Fridays and Sundays. Notably absent from the schedule are the team’s free T-Shirt Tuesdays — a mainstay of the previous three seasons.

Nats let fans vote for bobblehead night. Pudge or Teddy?

The recently-announced Nationals Promotion Schedule features three bobblehead giveaway nights for 2010, including a free Ryan Zimmerman bobblehead in June, a free Nyjer Morgan bobblehead in July, and a “fan’s choice” bobblehead in August.

This week the team opened voting for that “fans choice” game with a Nationals Bobblehead Sweepstakes. Nats fans can place your votes online to create a bobblehead for Pudge Rodriguez, John Lannan, Jim Riggleman, Jesus Flores, or Teddy Roosevelt. A write-in option is available as well. One voter will be selected to win a bobblehead autographed by the winner.

Not that we have a bias or anything, but if Teddy wins, we’ll definitely be having a party at Nationals Park for our favorite racing president on August 28. To vote, just visit the site and check the box next to the photo of Teddy holding up one of our Let Teddy Win campaign signs.

As this is a sweepstakes with a prize, the terms limit entries to one per person/email address/household.
