30th Anniversary of G. Richard Pfitzner Stadium to Feature
Most Entertaining Promo Slate in Franchise History

Woodbridge, VA—As the Potomac Nationals celebrate 30 seasons of baseball at G. Richard Pfitzner Stadium during the 2014 campaign, the P-Nats’ faithful will be treated to the most entertaining promotional schedule in the history of the franchise.

The Potomac Nationals are pleased to unveil an extremely potent promo slate that is underscored by a club-record 18 fireworks shows, 15 premium giveaways including the Jayson Werth “Wolf-A-rine” and the Werth Bobble Beard, as well as P-Nats bobbleheads of former first round draft picks, Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon, five game used and autographed throwback jersey auctions, and a visit from the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo with Tim “Wild Thang” Lepard & Team Ghost Riders as seen on ESPN’s E:60 program.

The Cowboy Monkey Rodeo is an internationally recognized live animal entertainment act that features capuchin monkeys riding sheep dogs herding livestock. Lepard and Team Ghost Riders have performed at destinations around Minor League Baseball, and even at the home of the Super Bowl hopeful, Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

“We are extremely excited about the entertainment we are bringing to our fans this summer at The Pfitz. The fireworks, premium giveaways, celebrity appearances, and our stadium’s 30th anniversary tributes along with the always affordable ticket options and revamped concessions items will give everyone in the family a variety of reasons to be a part of P-Nats Baseball in 2014. Last season was the best in franchise history across the board, and we know this year will be even better. I can’t wait to see our fans on Opening Day come April 8th,” says Potomac Nationals Vice President/General Manager, Josh Olerud.

The quintet of throwback jerseys to be auctioned off will be replicas of uniform tops worn during the eras of the Prince William Pirates (1984-1986), Prince William Yankees (1987-1988), Prince William Cannons (1989-1998), Potomac Cannons (1999-2004), and the Potomac Nationals (2005-Present).

To highlight the bridge from The Pfitz to “The Show,” the club will be unveiling a Potomac Nationals Wall of Fame up the First Base Line along the Home Clubhouse to pay tribute to former P-Nats players who have graduated to the Washington Nationals.

Pfitzner Stadium to host a record 17 fireworks shows, tons of premium giveaways, multiple celebrity appearances, and bevy of game used jersey auction nights in the ’13 season

Woodbridge, VA—Entering the 36th season in franchise history, the Potomac Nationals have revealed a preliminary promotional schedule for the 2013 campaign that is highlighted by a record number of theme nights, and the most entertainment ever packed into 70 P-Nats’ home games.

The Potomac Nationals ‘13 promotional lineup includes a whopping 17 fireworks shows, most ever at The Pfitz, a slew of premium giveaway items, a series of celebrity appearances, and many game used jersey auction nights.
“The P-Nats promo schedule is jam packed with unique promotions and exciting entertainment all season long, and we can’t wait for April 5th to get here! There is truly something for everyone at Pfitzner Stadium in 2013,” said Potomac Nationals Vice President/General Manager, Josh Olerud.

The P-Nats have confirmed the release of the most exciting line of bobbleheads in recent memory, while adding a special giveaway item that is soon to be a famous piece of memorabilia.

Former Potomac Cannons hurler, Dan Haren (St. Louis-2002), acquired by the Washington Nationals this off-season, will be immortalized with a bobblehead likeness of his days pitching in Woodbridge when he fanned 82 batters in 92.0 innings.

2010 Carolina League Most Valuable Player, OF/1B Tyler Moore, now with the Big League club, will be featured in a commemorative bobblehead that pays tribute to his monumental season with the Potomac Nationals in which he cranked 43 doubles, belted 31 home runs, and drove in 111 runs en route to the league’s best honor.

Finally, the Washington Nationals outfielder that has been dubbed, “The Shark,” Roger Bernadina (2006), will be memorialized in a half-man, half-shark figurine that the P-Nats front office has christened, “The Shark-A-rine.” This one-of-a-kind, never before seen player figure will serve as a rendering of Bernadina’s days hunting down fly balls in the outfield gaps at The Pfitz like a hungry shark chases its prey.

Season-long, fan-favorite Saturday fireworks nights will be complemented by additional fireworks extravaganzas following Sunday night games in the second half of the season beginning with the 6:05pm start on Sunday, June 23rd. Independence Day Weekend will be emphasized with three consecutive fireworks displays from Thursday, July 4th through Saturday, July 6th. Fourth of July fireworks will be presented by: Sentara.

With regards to the always popular jersey promotions, the Nationals will host a Washington Senators Throwback Jersey Night featuring an appearance by a Senators legend, and fans may place silent auction bids on these game worn collectables autographed by Potomac Nationals players and coaching staff.

Potomac players will be “Men of Steel” for one evening in 2013, when they will be adorned with Superman themed jerseys complete with the familiar chest plate and cape, and winners of these game used, autographed uniform tops will leave The Pfitz feeling like superheroes.

Replica batting helmets of former World Series Champion and field manager of the P-Nats, Brian Daubach, will dot the promo schedule and fans will have the opportunity to have their helmets signed by the Nationals skipper.

· MONDAY, OCTOBER 1: Teddy Eye Black
· TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2: Teddy Bumper Sticker
· WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3: Teddy Lapel Pin

In addition, various pregame and in-game videos featuring special guests will air in the hopes of motivating Teddy to put forth his best effort in the final races of the 2012 regular season. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit nationals.com/teddy.

The Nationals will also extend Fan Appreciation Month into October and give fans the opportunity to win various prizes during each game of the final homestand, including Nationals merchandise, autographed items from Nationals players and a variety of giveaways from the team’s corporate partners.
