Nats by the Numbers Bobblehead Trivia Challenge
Many of you have asked since the release of the Nationals promotional schedule who our 2013 bobbleheads will be. Well, we have good news and we have better news. The good news is, you’ll find out by Monday. The better news? If you’re the first person to accurately guess the identities of all three 2013 bobbleheads after we reveal clues this week, you’ll win 4 lower level tickets to one of the 2013 bobblehead games (we’ll have four of those bobbleheads waiting for you, of course) plus the other two 2013 bobbleheads to complete this year’s set!
Here’s how the giveaway works. Each day this week, we’ll give you a clue, which will lead you to a single digit. On Monday, we’ll drop the final clue, giving you five digits which you’ll need to unscramble in the correct sequence to reveal the jersey numbers of the members of our 2013 bobblehead class. Once the final clue is released, the first correct guess of all three bobbleheads using the hashtag #NatsBobbles will win!
Even if you aren’t our Grand Prize winner, we still have great prizes for you. The next three (3) runners up will receive one complete set of all three 2013 bobbleheads. And three (3) more consolation winners will get their choice of one (1) of the three 2013 bobbleheads.
So let’s get started…here’s your first clue towards unveiling this year’s bobbleheads!
CLUE #1: In how many consecutive games did Adam LaRoche homer against the Cubs last September?
CLUE #2: On what pitch of the at-bat did Roger Bernadina save the day, flying into the wall at Minute Maid Park to catch Brett Wallace’s deep drive August 7 in Houston?
CLUE #3: The number of pitches in Jayson Werth’s game-winning at-bat in Game 4 of the NLDS MINUS the inning in which he hit his home run.
CLUE #4: How many fewer home runs did Gio Gonzalez give up in the 2012 regular season than fellow Cy Young finalist Clayton Kershaw?
CLUE #5: How many All-Star selections do the Nationals players mentioned in the clues above have combined?
Your five clues correspond to the five digits that comprise the jersey numbers of our 2013 bobbleheads! REMEMBER: You MUST TWEET the correct responses using #NatsBobbles in order to qualify for the giveaway (complete rules here).
UPDATE: First of all, thank you all for your participation – based on reaction, it seems that even the most hardcore fans were pleasantly surprised by the level of involvement in this promotion. As a point of explanation, we pull all winners using a program designed specifically to track hashtags. That said, we pulled the first seven responses we saw after the final clue was announced. We appreciate your feedback, as it helps us make future promotions more fan friendly and accessible for all of you. If you won, congratulations. If not, don’t worry – we’ll have plenty more coming once the season starts, which – we don’t have to remind you – is only one week away!
