With "Pitchers & Catchers" reporting to Spring Training within a week and Opening Day just around the corner I thought it would be a good time to share some preview picks of an handful of Dodger Stadium giveaways for the upcoming season. Go here to check out a complete promotional schedule.
Probably the most anticipated freebie this season is the Justin Turner "Chia Pet" being given out on Saturday, April 30th against the Padres. Check out a preview pic of it above. Wow, right? It is the perfect combination of awesome and hilarious. Something tells me we'll be seeing many more of these in the future.
