The Nationals are giving away a Jayson Werth Chia Pet with a growing beard

It's that time of year, again. MLB teams are packing up and heading south for the start of Spring Training and Jimmy Fallon and all of his friends are getting together to decide which games they absolutely cannot miss on the new year's schedule. 

With the addition of Max Scherzer and the hope of a super rotation (and last year's best record), every game is can't-miss for Nationals fans. But everyone in D.C. should be sure to put a special note on their calendars for Wednesday, Aug. 5 against the D-backs ... because that's Jayson Werth Chia Pet Night at Nationals Park.

That's right, the first 20,000 fans through the gates will get a free Jayson Werth Chia Pet with a beard that actually grows. 

Hopefully this is the first item in what will become a collector's series featuring Bryce Harper's faux-hawk and Anthony Rendon's mustache.
