Nationals to give away Jayson Werth Chia Pet

Some promotional items are no-brainers. Such is the case with one of the Washington Nationals's stadium giveaways for the 2015 season.No, not the Anthony Rendon gnome, though that was an easy choice after last year's Jayson Werth gnome lovefest (there are only three listed on eBay, the cheapest is $165).  This season's best Nationals giveaway is another Werth gem. This time, it's a Jayson Werth Chia-Pet.Yep, a Chia Pet. In place of Werth's signature facial hair, you can sprout greenery. How great is that?  The Nats 2015 promo schedule includes a Rendon gnome, a Star Wars day, and a Werth Chia Pet— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) February 13, 2015“The gnome was so fantastic, and we felt like we had to push the envelope,” Valerie

Camillo, the team's chief revenue and marketing officer, told the Washington Post. “We were just thinking of something creative that people would get into. and Jayson is such a personality and lends himself so well to this sort of promotional fun, probably better than the average player….The first time that was mentioned, it was like ‘Yeah, that’s it.’ Then it was a matter of please don’t let it be too expensive.”The Werth Chia Pets will be given away to the first 20,000 fans before the August 5 game against the Diamondbacks.
