The Washington Nationals promotion/giveaway schedule — including the identities of the 2015 bobblehead days — will be revealed over the first ten weekdays of February by fans, with the help of racing president Teddy Roosevelt.
Each weekday from February 1st-13th between 11:00am and 1:00pm, Teddy Roosevelt will appear somewhere in the DC metropolitan area and tweet about his location. The first fans to find him each day and show him the tweet will find out the date of a promotional giveaway and get to make the announcement from their own Twitter accounts.
The Nationals announced the plan this morning via the team blog. Teddy can be followed @Teddy26Nats.

If you’ve ever dreamed of participating in the Washington Nationals’ iconic presidents race, here’s your chance.
The Nats are looking for men and women to take on the roles of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, William Howard Taft, and yes, Theodore Roosevelt for the 2015 Major League Baseball season.
Applications are being accepted at Nationals.com.
Applicants must be at least 5’7” in height and be in good enough physical shape to run 200 yards in the sun wearing a 50-pound costume in approximately 40 seconds or less. Between forty and sixty applicants are typically selected for invitations to audition.
Tryouts this year are closed to the public. In previous seasons, candidates have been asked to race against each other, run a 40-yard dash, dance, and show their celebration skills during the auditions, which are held rain or shine.
For a sense of what’s in store for applicants, check out one of our video chronicles from a few years back:
