Who wants a bobblehead to commemorate the final out of the World Series? How about one of Ben Zobrist winning the World Series MVP? Or maybe a replica World Series trophy? Huh, I’m sensing a theme.
While not all of the promotional items being given away at Wrigley this year will commemorate last year’s title, there’s definitely a preponderance of that stuff. I have no doubt fans will be shoehorning into the plaza to get through the metal detectors early for several giveaways, though. For my money, the fanny pack being handed out on July 7 is a must-have. Wait, never mind, it’s gotta be the Starting Lineup™ figuring on August 15.
As always, they’ll have “Kids Run the Bases” events after every Sunday day game and the promotions for those days are kid-themed. There’s actually some pretty cool swag in general as I’m looking through the list. I’m not someone who plans trips to the ballpark around what they’re handing out that day, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like getting free gear.
What’s your favorite item on the schedule?[poll id=”22″]
