Washington Nationals plan hilarious ‘chia beard’ giveaway

  • David Whitlock

The Washington Nationals have a creative fan giveaway in store for its fans this season.  It’s fun to hear when the marketing departments for Major League Baseball promotions think outside of the box.  Bobbleheads?  Been there, done that.  Towels, T-shirts, umbrellas…ho hum.  Chia beards?  Intriguing!  The Washington Nationals are planning to give away a limited edition (by default) Jayson Werth “chia beard” for attendees to the August 5 game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.  The Official Nationals Twitter has an artists rendition of the certain home run giveaway:

The former All-Star Werth had an eventful offseason for the wrong reason, pleading guilty to reckless driving (like 105 in a 65) on the Washington, D.C., beltway and has served jail time as a result.

The Nationals are expected to not only win the National League East, but also the NL Pennant behind deep, talented pitching and bats such as Werth’s.  To date, the franchise has not won a postseason series.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
