On July 4th the Brewers are giving away a "Hot Dog" figure from their daily race. It looks pretty cool.

The Black Jays are giving away bobble heads twice when the Sox are in Toronto.

May 28: Vernon Wells bobble head day

Aug 6: Cito Gaston bobble head day

But the most curious promotion in Toronto is June 27: Gustavo Chacin Cologne Night:

On Tuesday June 27, the first 10,000 fans exiting Rogers Centre will receive a sample of "Chacin Cologne." This is co-promotion with the FAN 590's Morning Show, with the idea for this giveaway coming from a re-occurring skit with Landry & Stellick. The actual fragrance will be personally designed by Gustavo Chacin, Gord Stellick and Don Landry. :?:

I like the fact that the Sox were the only one to be able to hand out one of these...

I hear the Royals are working on a "Have a Player For The Day" promotion. You can get guys like Mark Teahan or Angel Berroa for the day to do house chores, garden work, read to your kids - things like that...

I think that promo has legs. :wink:

They'd still probably suck while doing that. :cool:

I'm waiting for the first guy to wind up on the DL thanks to this promotion.

Kansas City Royals: C John Buck has been placed on the 15-day DL after teaching a group of Little Leaguers a game called "Running Bases" and ran into a nearby parked car.

I was watching TV the other day, and noticed that the other team 8 miles north, is giving away a BABE RUTH AUTHENTIC JERSEY (to 100 random winners). Wasnt Babe Ruth a Yankees player?

Do you think their fans notice?

My guess is no.

Any reason why?

I dunno, I guess they don't want to be bothered. It isn't like they couldn't find every company in New England willing to pay them for it.

They should at least give a free beer to whoever has an obstructed view seat.

The reason why there are no promotions for the BoSox is because they are 8.1 mil in the hole from last year in total operating costs vs. revenue.

You do realize that companies pay them to be able to sponsor promotions, don't you? That would be even more incentive for them to have promotions.

Simple, the Babe played for the Cubs brother in cuteness, the Red Sox and authored a curse.

The promotion is that you get to come out to Fenway Park to see a game.

I'm awaiting the Cubs pulling this idea in the next few years. No more floppy hats or goofy Harry Caray bus-windshield sunglasses. Come see the Park!

Then again, they been doing this since 1983.

Besides, getting a Ruth jersey at Wrigley Field sounds tantamount to winning a Tito Landrum jersey at the Cell.
