Those inside the Nationals' promotional department must also really enjoy gardening.
Since the beginning of last year, the team has given away both a Jayson Werth garden gnome and a Jayson Werth Chia-Pet.
Ben Revere will get his likeness plastered on a garden gnome later this season and on Tuesday night, the Nationals have given away a Bryce Harper Chia-Pet.
While the final product looks fine, the process of getting there is something out of an Alfred Hitchcock film.
Step 1: This is not bad.
Should we grow chia on just Bryce's head? Or his beard too? pic.twitter.com/KvzP3cWly3— John Forristal (@JForristal) July 6, 2016
Step 2: OK. This escalated quickly.
Step 3: Are those bugs? Those look like bugs.
Step 4: Nope nope nope nope nope
Now, below is what the final product should look like.

We find it hard to believe that any actual Bryce Harper chia pet will end up looking this normal.
