Pudge Rodriguez Fan Vote Bobblehead Winner
You would think that after all the fanfare Our Washington Nationals made earlier this spring to round up fans to vote their choice for the Fan Vote Bobblehead set for August 28th when The St.Louis Cardinals visit Nationals Park--a special announcement would be made to name the winner? Right?
Instead, during the middle of the 5th inning tonight on South Capitol Street, a simple advertisement is shown on the HDTV Scoreboard picturing the next two bobblehead days: Nyjer Morgan on July 31st (previously decided) and Pudge Rodriguez on August 28th as the Fan Vote Winner. No announcement. No special recognition. No acknowledgement to even thank the fans for participating this past March in the vote. The P.A. announcer didn't even say a word. This notice given after repeated inquiries to Nationals Staff asking when the details will be released about the Fan Vote Winner. And being told there is going to be a big announcement soon.
With one of the smallest crowds of the season as The San Diego Padres are in town, few probably even noticed the ad on the HDTV Scoreboard. Absolutely stunned that an effort supposedly made to increase fan involvement and interest was basically ignored tonight. As fans, we were disappointed there was no fanfare, whatsover, in announcing The Fans' Choice.
Above, please find two pictures of the Nyjer Morgan & Pudge Rodriguez Bobbleheads to be given away on July 31st and August 28th.
