Pin Trading at the Nationals

Win A Trip To The World Series! Souvenirs Your Kids Will Revisit For Years To Come


Join The Collecting Frenzy!

One of the activities that enhances the experience of the Youth Baseball Nationals is pin trading. Teams get custom-made pins created specifically for their team, signifying things like their home city and state, team mascot, player names and or numbers and other unique characteristics. Pin trading offers a great opportunity for players, coaches, parents and siblings of different teams to interact and meet each other during their time at the Nationals.

We at the Nationals take the pin trading to a whole new level and promote the activity heavily including the Nationals Pin Trading Contest where we give away a trip for two to the Major League Baseball World Series (see below)! Players of all ages have a blast trading pins with others and filling up their “pin towels” or “pin bags” with keepsakes from their National’s experience. We have partnered with Pinden and they have the exclusive rights to create the official pins for the Youth Baseball Nationals. Pinden will help you through each step of the process and have talented designers on staff that will assist you in creating your unique team’s pin from beginning art work ideas to the finished product. Begin the ordering process today, instructions below.


You read that right! We love pin trading at the Nationals, and to promote the activity even further, we’re giving away tickets to next year’s World Series! For each player that is able to collect a pin from each of the other teams participating, spanning all age groups, 9U through 14U, that player’s name will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to the 2018 Fall Classic, the Major League Baseball World Series! (to be eligible to win, your team must have a pin of their own to trade).

During check-in, the coach for each team will present our baseball operations staff with their team’s pin and we will accumulate a complete set at this time. There will be approximately 70 teams and therefore approximately 70 potential participants in the pin trading activities. You’ll want to collect one from each team in all age groups to make a complete set. We will provide a checklist of all teams participating in the pin trading for you to download from our website and distribute to your players to help them keep track of their collections. Once a player believes they have each pin, they will present their collection to our baseball operations staff for verification. Once verified, that player will be entered in the drawing for this amazing prize! The winner will be announced during the awards ceremony on Championship Thursday!

Turnaround time on custom pins is typically 3-4 weeks so you will want to order your pins early and plan accordingly to insure they arrive on time prior to your trip to the Nationals. Pins should be ordered by the team manager, head coach or team coordinator and should be ordered for the entire team at one time in order to coordinate the design and receive volume price breaks. Pinden is the exclusive, official pin provider of the Youth Baseball Nationals. Pinden guarantees they will not be beat on price, quality or service so you can rest assured you’re getting the best deal!

We recommend that you plan on ordering at least 1 pin for every team that will be participating in the Nationals for each of your players. We anticipate approximately 70-80 teams will be present. In other words, each player on your team should have approximately 80 pins. If your team carries 11 players, then we recommend ordering 880 pins. This will give players for each team the opportunity to compile a complete set and also qualify for the World Series contest.

Please confirm the number of teams attending before confirming your order.
