Washington Nationals Promotion Schedule for 2014

The Washington Nationals have tripled the number of bobbleheads given away this year as part of their 2014 game day promotion/giveaway schedule (full schedule below).

The schedule includes a whopping seven bobblehead nights, with quantities jumping from 15,000 per game to 25,000 per game, for a total of 175,000 bobbleheads, vs. just 60,000 in the previous several seasons. Honored this year will be Jordan Zimmermann, Denard Span, Wilson Ramos, Bryce Harper, Ian Desmond, racing president William Howard Taft, and Tyler Clippard (decided by fan vote over Adam LaRoche and manager Matt Williams). This will be the second bobblehead day for both Harper and Desmond.

The NatsLive free postgame concert series returns with three dates, down from four last season. Bands are to be announced.

Other giveaways include a Jayson Werth garden gnome, plus caps, t-shirts, an eco-friendly shopping bag, kids socks, a bottle cup (for adults only), a travel blanket, and a stocking cap on the final day of the season.

The popular Pups in the Park promotion, in which a section is reserved for canine guests, returns to Nationals Park for four dates throughout the season.

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.
