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 home 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, with each of the dolls reflecting a different moment in Nationals history. Ten lucky fans will randomly receive unique “golden ticket” dolls with a unique surprise at the center.

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. 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:

Full Nationals Promotion/Giveaway Schedule for 2012

Here it is — the full Washington Nationals promotion/giveaway schedule for the 2012 season at Nationals Park.

There are a several additions to the preliminary schedule we previously shared. Notably, the very popular Pups in the Park promotion, in which a section is reserved for canine guests, returns to Nationals Park for four dates in April, June, July, and September. Only the previously announced luggage tag giveaway has disappeared.

The 2012 promotion schedule includes three Saturday post-game concerts (bands all to be announced), and bobblehead nights for Michael Morse, Stephen Strasburg, and Ryan Zimmerman. Fan Appreciation Day has been redubbed “Fantastic FANale.” The only announced Fireworks for the season are on Tuesday, July 3rd.

The Nationals clearly don’t anticipate the need to promote their three series vs. the Phillies, or their interleague series vs. the Yankees and Rays. Those fifteen games are notable for their absence of giveaways.

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

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.
