Over the past three days, I’ve presented my picks for favorite giveaways, theme nights, and celebrity appearances of the year. Nearly all Minor League promos fall into at least one of those categories, but lest anything slip through the cracks I’ve created a fourth and final category. For lack of a better name, I’m calling it “Marvelous Miscellany.”
The following six promos don’t have much in common with one another, save for the fact that they were all exceedingly memorable. But what am I missing? Surely there were many other tough-to-categorize but eminently worthwhile ballpark events that deserve postseason commemoration — let me know!
Birmingham Barons — Rickwood Classic/100th Anniversary of Rickwood Field
Frederick Keys — Volt Night
Huntsville Stars – Car Survivor
Mobile BayBears — Opening of Hank Aaron Childhood Home and Museum
San Antonio Missions — Puffy Taco, the Re-Match
I’m just using this blog to illuminate universal truths. Also, to solicit feedback. Keep your promo suggestions coming, in all categories. You know where to find me.
