During the 2013 season, we gave Nationals fans the chance to earn points for interacting with us on social media through our “Touch ‘Em All” social rewards program. The top 10 finalists would have the chance to meet Ryan Zimmerman, with one lucky fan being selected to win a private hitting lesson with the third baseman.
Fingers flew over keyboards, Instagam pictures were posted and MASN Nationals postgame memes were shared on Facebook. Each month, top followers on our social media accounts were treated to autographed gear from Denard Span, Zimmerman and Gio Gonzalez.
In addition to the monthly competition, points accumulated over the season to find MASN’s most engaged social media followers. After months of competition, contest winner Jeremy Buckler found himself in the top 10. He was then randomly selected out of the 10 to win a hitting lesson with Zimmerman at Nationals Park.
