I highly doubt that the majority of season ticket holders made the decision to make that kind of investment based on the number of fireworks or bobblehead giveaways.
Besides, fireworks are for everyone and bobbleheads are only for the 10,000 people who show up at 10AM. I barely got the Frank Thomas one, there were 20 or so left at my gate at 11:30.

I wouldn't mind more lesser promotions like hats, t-shirts or pins since they're less expensive to make and more fans get end up getting them.
