MLB Promotions/Giveaways Week 3 - The Weekend (April 21 - April 23)

promotions giveaways
So I missed out on getting the Twins Fur Bomber Hat last Saturday. Not that I was coming up specifically for that, but it would have been nice. However, I did get a sunburn and a chance to see a one-hitter instead. I'll take that deal any time.

The Twins have two giveaways this week. On Saturday there is a Twins Red Cap to the first 20,000 fans and on Sunday there is a "Twins Customizable Shirt" in Youth M or XL for the first 5000 kids 14 and under. Looks like the shirt will have the basic "Twins" on the front and then the kid can put their own name on the back (unsure about the number). It actually seems like a cool idea.

Other Promos for the week: (Home team first)

Friday, April 21
Chicago White Sox vs Cleveland Indians - MLB Network White Sox Tote Bag
Colorado Rockies vs San Francisco Giants - Earth Day T-Shirt
Los Angeles Angels vs Toronto Blue Jays - Angels Hero Cape
New York Mets vs Washington Nationals - Free Shirt Friday
Oakland Athletics vs Seattle Mariners - Pet Calendar

Most, if not all ,teams will be giving away a MLB Network tote bag some time this season. I scoffed at the idea at first but then again, I walk around Aldi trying to hold my groceries in my hands. I guess I'm the idiot.

Saturday, April 22
Minnesota Twins vs Detroit Tigers -Twins Red Cap
Arizona Diamondbacks vs Los Angeles Dodgers - D-Backs Car Sunshade
Baltimore Orioles vs Boston Red Sox - Orioles Welcome Mat
Chicago White Sox vs Cleveland Indians - White Sox Hooded Sweatshirt

Pittsburgh Pirates vs New York Yankees - Free Shirt Saturday

This is where geography starts to make a difference. In the colder areas, we see giveaways like the Fur Trapper Hat whereas in warmer climates there are items such as a D-Backs Car Sunshade. Also, I find the idea of a Rangers BBQ Spatula amusing.
