Pfitzgiving is coming to Pfitzner Stadium, as the Potomac Nationals (High A; Carolina League) have announced details for the promotion. Complete with specialty jerseys and a Bryce Harper gobblehead, the promotion on May 13 will mark the team’s halfway to Thanksgiving celebration.
With gates to The Pfitz set to open at 5:00 pm, Pfitzgiving will feature a delectable fully catered Thanksgiving all-you-can-eat buffet-style dinner with all the fixin’s available in the Bullpen Picnic Area. This will be available to fans who upgrade their ticket to the P-Nats’ 5/13 game for $10, either as a part of a pre-purchase or a gameday purchase.
To the backdrop of Thanksgiving décor, Pfitzgiving-style turkey (hot) dogs with a cranberry sauce topping will be sold in the Main Concessions Stand for fans who wish to indulge in a special delicacy that is sure to become a Pfitzgiving tradition.
The highlight of Pfitzgiving will most certainly be the P-Nats’ half-man, half-turkey, never-before seen, Bryce Harper Gobblehead giveaway, sponsored by: Cowles Parkway Ford. It will be given away to the first 1,250 fans who enter Pfitzner Stadium on Pfitzgiving. This will be the world’s first “gobblehead” giveaway known to mankind.
The Bryce Harper Gobblehead will be the first installment given away to P-Nats fans in the Potomac Nationals’ 2017 Official Bobblehead Series.
The P-Nats will also host a canned food drive and a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank. The Potomac Nationals are asking fans to please bring canned food donations to the Extreme Custom Collision Ticket Office. All donations will be sent directly to the Capital Area Food Bank to help families in need.
A special Thanksgiving-themed on-field, game used, autographed jersey auction will run during the game with proceeds to benefit Gar-Field High School. Fans will bid on these unique Pfitzgiving-inspired jerseys worn by P-Nats players and coaches during the game, which are then autographed after the game by the player or coach who wore the jersey. Fans who win the jerseys will get to come on to the field post-game and take a photo with the player or coach while holding the signed, game-used jersey.
Thanksgiving-esque activities during Pfitzgiving will include: a cornhole tournament, a pie eating contest, a Turkey Call competition, and a corn shucking race, to underscore the Pfitzgiving holiday.
Meanwhile, P-Nats fans will have the opportunity to tell the Pfitzner Stadium gallery what they are thankful for this Pfitzgiving. Responses will be read aloud over the public address system during the game.
Hidden wishbones will be placed inside of select free souvenir programs, which will unlock free 2017 P-Nats tickets.
On top of a night full of Pfitzgiving entertainment, the Potomac Nationals will cap off Pfitzgiving with a post-game fireworks show after the P-Nats finish their clash with the Red Sox, brought to fans by Cowles Parkway Ford and WTOP to culminate another Super Saturday at The Pfitz.
Also, post-game Kids Run the Bases will be presented by: Glory Days Grill, as children aged 12 and under will be able to circle the bases on the Pfitzner Stadium diamond.
