Popular mascot gets makeover for 2013 season.
The Potomac Nationals will be revealing a new look for its official mascot on Saturday, Feb. 16. Uncle Slam was reportedly "injured" in the June fire at the Nationals' administration office. The P-Nats have been teasing the makeover this week on social media and will make the public unveiling Saturday at Wegmans in Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center. "Slam has been waiting all off-season to reunite with our fans and looks forward to his best season to date!" says P-Nats Vice President and General Manager, Josh Olerud. The event Saturday will run from noon until 2 p.m. Uncle Slam is expected to arrive at 12:30 p.m. to meet with fans and sign autographs. Uncle Slam's bounce house and a coloring station will also be set up.
