After looking on the internet the past few day I have realized how many good promotions there are around the area. I usually check to see what is going on, and I had quite a list going. I decided that maybe I could share my finds with the blogging community. Here are some of the interesting promotions in the Midwest League and the other teams that are close to the area. If I have missed something that you want on here let me know.
Saturday June 13th
Indianapolis Indians – Team autograph night, and camo jerseys. The entire team will be signing before the game, and they are also wearing camo jerseys to support our troops. The jerseys will be auctioned off.
Quad City – Brett Wallace bobblehead night
Columbus Clippers – George Foster appearance.
Sunday June 14th
South Bend Silverhawks – Hoosier Bat Giveaway. The are giving away a sweet full size Hoosier Bat to the first 1,500 kids 14 and younger. They may not even draw 1,500 people so I don’t know what they are going to do with the extra bats. I may have to go and see.
