Minnesota Twins release promotional and giveaway schedule
By Chris Schad
The Minnesota Twins released their yearly promotional schedule and if their starting pitching doesn’t impress you, their SWAG certainly will.
The Minnesota Twins have high aspirations on the field in 2020, but if there’s one thing we know about this year’s version of the team, it’s that they’ll have plenty of stuff in the stands worth being talked about if the team wins or loses.
This week, the Twins released their promotional schedule for the 2020 season and like most years it includes several bobbleheads. Long one of the Twins’ top promotional items, the team will be going to the well early with the Josh Donaldson hype train as he will get his own bobblehead day on June 16.
In addition, the Twins are capping off the Justin Morneau bobblehead weekend by giving him his own bobblehead on May 23. The Twins will also have a “30 bomba club” bobblehead giveaway on June 27, which will include all five players that hit 30 home runs for the Twins last year (Max Kepler, Nelson Cruz, Eddie Rosario, Miguel Sano and Mitch Garver).
In each bobblehead giveaway, the first 10,000 fans will cash in whether they’ve been rolling up to the gate right before first pitch or camping out the night before (Minnesota weather pending). For those who don’t feel like brawling with a collector for the final bobblehead, there’s still plenty to keep Twins fans coming to the ballpark.
Once again, the Twins will be giving away a piece of clothing to stay warm during the Apr. 2 home opener against the Oakland Athletics and on May 4. Other occasions include the 60th Anniversary celebration weekend from July 31 to Aug. 2 against the Houston Astros. A Negro League Centennial Celebration game against the Kansas City Royals on Aug. 14 and Fan Appreciation Weekend against the Detroit Tigers on Sept. 18-20.
Hopefully, by that time, the Twins will have people coming to the ballpark to see the team instead of to get giveaways, but if you want to plan your trips around it, the full schedule can be found here.
