Jayson Werth Gnome Giveaway Has Nationals Fans Excited

Every once in a while, there is a promotional giveaway at a ballpark that transcends beach towels, tote bags and bobbleheads. The Jayson Werth garden gnome is one of them.

The gnome has arrived at Nationals Park for Washington's game against the New York Mets on Tuesday, and fans have been lined up since 2 p.m. to be one of the 25,000 lucky recipients of the diminutive Werth, which traveled the country with the Nationals on their recent road trip.
