Minor League Baseball is as much about the promotions as it is about the baseball. And in that game, the Potomac Nationals are winning.
The team announced that it will be giving away an “Ode to Tommy John” figurine in which you can pull out parts of the arm.

It’s unclear whether the Nationals organization to use this to ward off curses, though the organization sure has had bad luck with Tommy John surgeries.
The Potomac Nationals are currently a below-average team in the Carolina League, but as noted above, wins and losses don’t matter in the minors. All that matters is the fun, and to that end, the team is first place in our hearts.
