Washington Nationals plan hilarious ‘chia beard’ giveaway
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.
