As you would suspect, the Dodgers are wasting no time in getting everything ready for the upcoming 2015 Baseball season. A schedule for the 2015 season has already been announced, as well as, a schedule for the upcoming Spring Training games in Arizona.
Little noticed, though, is that the Dodgers 2015 'Promotion & Giveaways" schedule on their website is also being updated at this very minute. Via a Hat Tip from Reddit r/Briarsaunt, we find out that various dates have already been filled with potential giveaways. Go here to check out the Dodgers Giveaway schedule.
New for the 2015 season will be a series of Cy Young Collectors' Pins. There will be eight different pin's available; one for each individual Dodger Cy Young winner. Below is a list with dates:
- Don Newcombe (4/13)
- Don Drysdale (4/27)
- Sandy Koufax (5/14)
- Dr. Mike Marshall (6/18)
- Fernando Valenzuela (8/10)
- Orel Hershiser (8/29)
- Eric Gagne (9/14)
- Clayton Kershaw (9/20)
A 1965 World Series Replica Ring that will be given to fans on the day of the Old-Timers Game (5/16). Undoubtedly, former players from the '65 club will be in attendance. There will also be an Hollywood Stars Game (6/6). Other giveaways include a Garden Gnome (5/25), a Hello Kitty Plush (7/8) and 10 different Bobbleheads. Unfortunately, it is not known at this time which players will be getting a bobblehead.
BTW, according to Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider, the Garden Gnome to be given out on May 25th will be a Tommy Lasorda Garden Gnome! Awesome! I wonder if Andrew Friedman had some influence with this giveaway. During the 2013 season the Tampa Bay Rays gave away 10,000 Joe Maddon Garden Gnome's and it quickly earned honors as one of the best giveaways of the year throughout Baseball. Check out a pic of it below.
