I received my first minor-league baseball promotional e-mail of the season on Monday morning, and it was a good one. Some highlights from the Potomac Nationals season preview:
* On April 15, the P-Nats will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic by allowing women and children into the ballpark 15 minutes before men. So, so amazing.
* The team will also have a Presidential-campaign themed bobblehead night at some point, likely featuring the heads of Barack Obama and the Republican nominee.
* The team will also elaborately celebrate its 35th anniversary. (The P-Nats were originally the Alexandria Dukes, and will begin their 35th season this spring.) Among the highlights of the celebration: a 35th anniversary logo which will be worn on home jerseys, reunion nights for past Carolina League champion teams, at least one game where the team will wear commemorative jerseys, and an Alexandria Dukes hat giveaway night on August 10.
* There will also be a Battle of the Sexes night, featuring a 250-feet Tug-of-War.
