Shouldn't they technically give a Hawk alarm clock away during Opening Day or the Cubs series since those are his only home games now?

If it'll make the Sox marketing team feel better, I'll be buying tickets for this.

No bobblehead of statue giveaways on the schedule. The White Sox might be the only team in MLB not given away these items.

The Uecker alarm clock was awesome, and worked because his home run call includes the phrase "get up!" This Hawk one will be less so.

I can't believe there are no bobbleheads. I usually circle in pencil games I'm interested in once the schedule comes out, ready to adjust them when giveaways are announced. I don't think this slate changes my plans at all.

The comments on the team facebook account are pure gold.

Some of them saying that the alarm clock will have a feature that will help you fall asleep. The feature will be called Yaz.

I dunno, I think it's a perfect opportunity for "Strrretch" to be programmed on it. I'll also accept, "You gotta be bleepin' me!" or any part of the Wegner rant.

This also might not be the entire giveaway schedule yet.

Yes, I seem to recall that other promotion dates were added as we got closer to the start of the season last year.
