Next season is the 10th anniversary of the Washington Nationals, and the ballclub is allegedly giving out bobbleheads of the team’s greatest moments to commemorate the occasion. This is a fantastic idea. Bobblehead giveaways, while incredibly popular, are starting become a stale idea. Linking the bobblehead giveaways to a 10th anniversary theme is a great way to keep the idea fresh.

Without giving it too much thought, here is a quick wish list for the Greatest Moments in Nationals History Bobblehead Series:

– Livan Hernandez, first pitch at RFK Stadium (2005)

– Brad Wilkerson hitting for the cycle (2005)

– Vinny Castilla getting beaned by Lance Cormier in the first game at RFK in his fourth at-bat, thereby preventing him from hitting for the cycle (any Vinny Castilla was suffice actually) (2005)

– Chad Cordero closing out the Nationals 10-game winning streak in their first season (2005)

– Ryan Zimmermann walk-off home run in the first game at Nationals Park (2008)

– Stephen Strasburg first MLB start (i.e. “Strasmus”) (2010)

– Frank Robinson (no particular occasion needed)

– Adam Dunn wearing a “Natinals” jersey (we can laugh about this now, right?) (2009)

– Bryce Harper stealing home on Cole Hamels on Sunday Night Baseball (this one would look the coolest because he’s sliding) (2012)
