We find ourselves a little bit more a-twitter each day for baseball season; we are already counting the minutes until our return to Dewey's Flatiron for our regular shot of the Cards in NYC (as mentioned in that book thing). To continue to whet your appetite, Home Run Derby has a list of the top ballpark promotions of the upcoming season.
There are tons of good ones, but our favorites are:
• JJ Putz Soul Patch Night. The Cards were gonna have one for Spezio, but, unfortunately, they couldn't come up with enough heroin to go around. It happens.
• The Joe Mauer Fishing Lure. We like, we like: It's like a twist on the bobblehead. Plus, it's ice fishing, we presume.
• Free Money Night For The Indians. Without question our favorite. We'll let Home Run Derby describe this one:
The Indians did this last season to great fanfare. So it's back. When you enter the ballark, you'll get an envelope. In that envelope could be between $1 and $10,000. The Indians will be giving away $50,000 dollars to 32,849 fans at this game.
This is a brilliant idea; we knew that revenue sharing money would come in handy!
