Jayson Werth and Trea Turner rehabbed with the Potomac Nationals. A bobblehead giveaway helped make it one of the biggest games in PNats history
Over the years, bobbleheads have become huge draws for sports teams and a unique, valuable commodity to fans. This past Saturday, a local minor league baseball team experienced the drawing power of a great giveaway combined with rehabilitation stints by two of the organization’s biggest stars. Just like the Great American Eclipse the week before, everything aligned to create a spectacular event.
In January, the Carolina League’s Potomac Nationals, the High-A affiliate of the Nats, held a fan vote to determine what their fan-voted bobblehead of the summer should be. Fans voted in droves for a bobblehead featuring the Nationals’ sideline reporter and the team’s hairy and majestically bearded outfielder, Jayson Werth.
It highlighted one of the most iconic moments of the 2016 season. Fans had to have it.
