This Week’s Promotions (6/21-6/28)

Normally I would like to have this go Monday – Sunday. Since I left Sunday out of last week’s post I will have to just put it in here. Lots of father’s day opportunities if you are so inclined to go and play catch on a professional field. There are also a couple of interesting bobbleheads, and some nice appearances of former Chicago sports celebrities.

Sunday June 21
Kane County Cougars – Pre game catch with dad on the field/picnic.
South Bend Silverhawks – Canines at the Cove. Dogs get in for free. Pre game parade around the field. Could get a couple interesting hops during the game I guess.
