Nationals and MedStar Health to celebrate newborn baseball fans

COLUMBIA, MD - Beginning this Mother's Day on Sunday, May 11, the Washington Nationals, in partnership with MedStar Health - the official medical partner of the Nationals - will welcome its newest fans into the world by providing parents and their newborns with Nationals gift bags. All babies born at local MedStar Health Hospitals on designated dates during the 2014 baseball season will receive Nationals-branded items including a onesie and a bucket hat, as well as baseball caps for the new parents.

Future dates include Father's Day (June 15), Independence Day (July 4), All Star Game (July 15), Labor Day (September 1) and potential postseason games. In addition, gift bag recipients are encouraged to post photos of their newborn on Instagram using the hashtag #NatsMyBaby for a chance to win four tickets to see the Nationals play on September 27.

Hospitals participating in the program are: MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, MedStar Montgomery Medical Center, MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center, MedStar St. Mary's Hospital, and MedStar Washington Hospital Center.
