Washington Nationals Top 5 Promotional Game Themes
Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

It’s been a miserable decade to be a fan of the Washington Nationals, going from the meteoric heights of a World Series championship and five postseason appearances in eight years to three-straight 90-loss campaigns in the nation’s capital city.  

This year, it doesn’t look like things are going to get much better for D.C. baseball fans across Virginia sports betting, with the Nats ranking in a tie with the Pittsburgh Pirates for the second longest NL championship odds at most sportsbooks.

That road to redemption begins in earnest in Cincinnati on Thursday when the Nats play three games against the Reds before returning to Nationals Park for a six game homestand against the Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies. 

Luckily for the Nationals ownership, themed games still draw in a wide range of MLB fans. Using the Washington Nationals 2024 Promotions & Events Schedule, BetVirginia.com surveyed Nationals fans on Reddit to see what the favorite themed nights were. Then, we ranked the top 5 promotions according to votes.

Based on this survey, Patriotic Series is the favorite Nationals themed promotion this season.
