The Trenton Thunder are celebrating their 20th season in 2013, with a special event planned for the anniversary of their first game in Trenton on May 9th.
There will be many 20th season-themed giveaways throughout the year, including t-shirts (April 26th), mini-bats (April 28th – kids only), pennants (May 17th), and banners (July 23rd).
Bobbleheads are always popular, and the Thunder are reaching back into their past for some of this year’s giveaways: Kevin Youkilis (May 10th), Chase (July 5th), Robinson Cano (July 19th), Nomar Garciaparra (mini bobblehead on August 9th) and Joba Chamberlian (August 23rd).
My favorites are baseball cards, and the Thunder are giving away two sets this year: the regular team card sets on June 21st and all-time Thunder team card sets on August 3rd.
MLB Network is bringing former Cincinnati Reds star Sean Casey to Arm & Hammer Park on May 28th to sign autographs and meet fans; New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford will meet fans and sign autographs on June 12th courtesy of Steiner Sports.
There will be various other giveaways throughout the season, plus frequent fireworks nights.
I’m hoping to go for the baseball card giveaways and to see Steve Weatherford… let’s see how things work out. Which promotions are you most interested in?
