5 Wearable Promos for Baseball Season
We've been complaining about this winter for a long time now. We know it is annoying for those of you in warmer areas to see us gripe about the snow and below-freezing temperatures, so I wanted to take a break from whining about something we cannot change and focus on something we can: baseball promotions. That's right, baseball season is right around the corner and I can't wait.
I wrote about a great ballpark giveaway in May 2012. I'm hoping for some more fun apparel and accessories giveaways this year. Here are five ideas for your baseball-playing or -supporting clients, whether professional, collegiate, or little league.
The baseball season stretches from March to October, which means the first few and last few games can be chilly so fans need warmer gear than the standard tees and caps. Hoodies fill that need for chilly, but not freezing, spring and fall nights. Because of the higher cost of hoodies, these may be better for a smaller group of people at the game—perhaps season ticket holders.
Baseball caps are common at baseball games for obvious reasons. Add something a little different to your ballgame promotions by handing out visors.
Have you ever forgotten your sunglasses when going to baseball game? You're left squinting at the field, hoping you are cheering for the right team, but mostly getting a headache from straining your eyes. Well, you can solve that problem for other game-goers by having your client sponsor sunglasses to give out to fans as they enter the stadium.
NFL games may have strict guidelines for what bags attendees can bring to the game, but MLB stadiums do not. Celebrate with baseball-themed bags like this drawstring one.
Similar to hoodies, scarves provide fans with apparel that they can wear for games in colder climates or months. They're great for when the only team gear someone owns is covered by a parka.
Editor's Note: If you are looking to get a non-baseball client involved in park promotions, look at this list of special events for pro baseball teams. You can focus on clients that cater to the themed markets.
