Washington Nationals fans woke up to a nice surprise this morning—the team announced over Twitter that almost 100 Jayson Werth gnomes are hiding around DC, Maryland, and Virginia today, some of which have special prizes attached. Gnomes have been found around Old Town, Dupont Circle, American University, and a handful of other locations so far, but, from the looks of the tweets, there are still plenty of tiny Werths left to find. Sounds like it’s time for a coffee break.

If you’re not lucky enough to find a gnome with playoff tickets attached, there’s still a way to win some. Create a postseason sign for the team and upload it to Twitter or Instagram before Thursday, October 2, at 1 PM.
