MLB Promotions/Giveaways Week 4 - The Weekend (April 28 - April 30)

Posted by Tyleski , 25 April 2017 · 606 views

promotions giveaways bobbleheads
By now every team has had their first (or second) homestand, so some of the excitement and shine of the start of a new season has started to wear off. Gone are the calendars (mostly, the White Sox are giving one away Wednesday and the Tigers are giving one away Saturday) and the home opener celebrations. There are still some interesting items to be had, however.

Locally, the Twins are in Texas through Wednesday and are in Kansas City this weekend, so there are no Twins-related giveaways (although on eBay last Saturday's Fur Bomber Hat is going for $27.94, the magnetic schedule is at $6.98 and the Opening Day long-sleeved hooded tee is going for $15.99 as of this writing... in case you want to buy something you missed).



Friday, April 28 (Home Team First)
Miami Marlins vs Pittsburgh Pirates - Marlins Fedora
Milwaukee Brewers vs Atlanta Braves - Free-Shirt Friday: Long Sleeve T-Shirt
New York Yankees vs Baltimore Orioles - Yankees Fleece Blanket Night
St. Louis Cardinals vs Cincinnati Reds - Bruce Sutter Garden Gnome
San Francisco Giants vs San Diego Padres - Giants Player Scarf
Texas Rangers vs Los Angeles Angels - Rally Towel

Kind of a light day for items here. I'm tempted to give my "promo of the day" to the Bruce Sutter Garden Gnome, but I'm giving the nod to the Marlins Fedora.

Three bobbleheads on Saturday. I'm going to go with the Carlos Martinez and Matt Carpenter Double Bobblehead as my favorite of the day. Does anyone know what's in a Brewers Coupon Book?

Best promo of the day goes to the Giants with the "Pence on Board" Plush Window Cling, if only because it seems like it will give someone nightmares.
