The Washington Nationals were supposed to celebrate their World Series championship last week at Nats Park. On Thursday (April 2), the Nats were going to reveal their championship banner during their home opener. The team then planned to present players with their championship rings two days later. The coronavirus pandemic robbed us of both of those games, but not the bobbleheads that were made to commemorate those events.
World Series champion Adam Eaton released a photo of FOCO’s latest series of Nationals’ championship bobbleheads on his Instagram account. This design celebrates the Nationals banner ceremony and championship rings and gives hints at what both will look like. Eaton is immortalized in resin as well as star players Max Scherzer (yes, both eyes are different colors), Stephen Strasburg, Juan Soto, Ryan Zimmerman, and Howie Kendrick.

I asked Adam what it was like, not only to be a World Series champion, but to be immortalized in a bobblehead too.
“It’s surreal to say the least,” he said.
He then sent me these two amazing photos.
Here’s a look at the other new Nationals bobbleheads.
FOCO is the same company behind the wildly popular Alex Ovechkin goal-counter bobblehead (there’s only 200 left) and the Tom Wilson and Halle bobble that benefits Wolf Trap Animal Rescue. They’ve also created a wide variety of awesome Nationals’ World Series champions merch from drawstring backpacks to sweaters.
