(Via the Nationals)

Anticipation has been building for Tuesday night’s Jayson Werth Garden Gnome giveaway at Nationals Park since a photo of Werth’s gnome likeness was posted in June.

Jayson Werth Garden Gnome Day is finally here, and the lowest-priced ticket on StubHub for Tuesday’s game is $42.50. (You can find a ticket to Wednesday’s gnome-less game for $8.) Some people are already selling the gnomes, which will be given out to the first 25,000 fans, on eBay, and Fluffy Thoughts Bakery is celebrating the occasion by offering gnome cookies at their two Nationals Park stands.

It’s been a long journey to D.C. for the Jayson Werth Garden Gnome, as documented by the Nationals’ Instagram account. Good luck acquiring one of these guys to take home tonight. The Center Field Gate opens at 4:30.
