The Nationals released details about 2011 promotions Friday night -- highlights include a Jayson Werth Bobblehead giveaway to 15,000 lucky fans on Saturday, July 30th vs. the Mets.
Thankfully the Nationals showed good sense in not scheduling Werth's big night for April 14th. That, of course, is the scheduled date of the next Phillies fan invasion of Nationals Park, courtesy of Phillies Nation.com and the Washington Nationals:
If the current pitching staff stays healthy, Cliff Lee should be on the mound for this game!
Our seats will be in right field again where we once cheered Jayson Werth.
The buses will leave from McFadden’s Ballpark at 1 PM but don’t forget about Kegs’n’Eggs starting at 10 AM where $10 gets you a breakfast buffet and your first pint of Miller LITE! ...
This will be a night game in April so dress warm, but we as Philadelphians certainly know how to party in the cold!
Great! So the Nationals have conveniently blocked off a section in right field for Phillies fans to heckle Jayson Werth all night long, AND the hooligans will start getting liquored up at 10 AM in Philly for a 7:05 PM start? Who said Phillies fans would no longer feel welcome in Washington once Stan Kasten left town?
This is a call to arms, NatsTown. Buy your tickets to 4/14 now before the Phillies fans do...
