The Dodgers rolled out the new promotional giveaways for 2016 on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium to give a first look at some popular items. Bobbleheads are always among the favorites each year but there are also several other fun components to look forward to on the schedule.
"We're so proud of our promotional calendar that we put together," said David Siegel, Dodgers' VP of Ticket Sales. "I think it really speaks to the value we add to a Dodger game. It really goes above and beyond just the price of the ticket."
Siegel also hinted that there will be a good amount of Vin Scully related giveaways added to the list before season's end. The Scully promotional items will be announced soon but the Dodgers weren't comfortable making those announcements just yet.
There are 81 home games throughout the major league season and the Dodgers have an event or giveaway for nearly all of them (43 giveaways, 13 Friday night fireworks, 12 Viva Los Dodgers, 2 Movie Nights, Independence Day Fireworks, Old-Timers Game, Hollywood Stars Game and La Gran Fiesta). Every single promotion can be seen here.
