Fridays are always Flashback Fridays, with nostalgic flashbacks to earlier time periods of the franchise, which will be reflected in promotions, activities, contests, events and special ticket and concessions deals.

Bring the whole family out to the game, with the Friday Family Pack! For the low price of $44, fans will receive four reserved section tickets, four regular hot dogs, four 22oz sodas and four adjustable P-Nats hats.

Head to The Pfitz for a one-of-a-kind Super Saturday Pfitzgiving celebration to spotlight the halfway mark to Thanksgiving. In celebration of Early Turkey Day at Pfitzner Stadium, the P-Nats are going all out to ring in Pfitzgiving.

Pfitzgiving will feature a delectable fully catered Thanksgiving all-you-can-eat buffet-style dinner with all the fixin's available in the Bullpen Picnic Area. This will be available to fans who upgrade their ticket $10, either as a part of a pre-purchase or a gameday purchase.

To the backdrop of Thanksgiving décor, Pfitzgiving-style turkey (hot) dogs with a cranberry sauce topping will be sold in the Main Concessions Stand for fans who wish to indulge in a special delicacy that is sure to become a Pfitzgiving tradition.

The highlight of Pfitzgiving will most certainly be the P-Nats' half-man, half-turkey, never-before seen, Bryce Harper Gobblehead giveaway, sponsored by Cowles Parkway Ford. It will be given away to the first 1,250 fans who enter Pfitzner Stadium on Pfitzgiving. This will be the world's first "gobblehead" giveaway known to mankind.

The P-Nats will also host a canned food drive and a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank. The Potomac Nationals are asking fans to please bring canned food donations to the Extreme Custom Collision Ticket Office. All donations will be sent directly to the Capital Area Food Bank to help families in need. 

A special Thanksgiving-themed on-field, game used, autographed jersey auction will run during the game with proceeds to benefit Gar-Field High School. Fans will bid on these unique Pfitzgiving-inspired jerseys worn by P-Nats players and coaches during the game, which are then autographed after the game by the player or coach who wore the jersey. Fans who win the jerseys will get to come on to the field post-game and take a photo with the player or coach while holding the signed, game-used jersey.  

Additional Thanksgiving-esque activities during Pfitzgiving will include: a cornhole tournament, a pie eating contest, a Turkey Call competition and a corn shucking race.

Meanwhile, P-Nats fans will have the opportunity to tell the Pfitzner Stadium gallery what they are thankful for this Pfitzgiving. Responses will be read aloud over the public address system during the game.

Hidden wishbones will be placed inside of select free souvenir programs, which will unlock free 2017 P-Nats tickets. There will also be a Pfitzgiving-themed photo station set up in the concourse.

Also, Flying Dog Brewery will be sampling by first base gate once gates open.

Stick around post-game to see the best fireworks show in the area, sponsored by WTOP and Cowles Parkway Ford.
