A year after teammate Jayson Werth received the unique honor, Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper is getting the Chia Pet treatment.

Like Werth, Harper is known for, among other things, his hair. From the flow on top of his head to his beard, the outfielder's hair has made for a signature look.

Now fans will be able to grow their own Harper hair.

The Nationals have not released their full promotional schedule for the 2016 season, but on Thursday, the team did reveal that it will have a Chia Pet giveaway in honor of the 2015 National League Most Valuable Player:

Werth's Chia Pet included not only facial hair, but chest hair as well. If the Nationals can find a way to feature Harper's flow as well as the beard, this could go down as one of the best promotions in baseball this year.
