Diamondbacks announce 2013 promotional schedule
Promotional highlights include a Wade Miley garden gnome and three bobbleheads, among others.
Miley's gnome will be given away on April 27, when the D-backs host the Rockies. The first of the three bobbleheads will be distributed on June 8, and will honor second baseman Aaron Hill for his two cycles last season by displaying the hashtag #BiCycle, courtesy of Arizona Sports 620. The other two bobbleheads will feature first baseman Paul Goldschmidt on Aug. 10, and catcher Miguel Montero on Sept. 14, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Day.
Additionally, the D-backs will be hosting a new series of events prior to four games this season (Apr. 1, Apr. 13, May 11, Sept. 14). The street festivals will host food trucks, D-backs inflatables and other activities for fans before entering the stadium.
The ball club will also host $5 College Nights, School Family Nights, Choir Nights and Senior Days. The team will also present post-game fireworks following ten Friday night games throughout the season.
