Grizzlies Announce 2011 Giveways

PRESS RELEASE – The Fresno Grizzlies, Triple-A affiliate of the 2010 World Champion San Francisco Giants, continued the week-long unveiling of their promotional schedule today with the announcement of their complete lineup of premium giveaways for the 2011 season. Fans will be treated to mainstays like jersey t-shirts and baseball caps, as well as new items such as collectible hard hats and unique World Champion bobbleheads.

Opening weekend brings with it a trio of giveaways. On Friday, April 8th, the first 10,000 fans in the ballpark will receive a 2011 Grizzlies Magnet Schedule, presented by Fresno Pet ER.

The first 2,000 fans through the gate on the first Saturday of the season, April 9th, will receive a Self-Bobblehead T-Shirt, presented by Tickets.com. Turn yourself into a live-action Grizzlies bobblehead just by wearing this item.

The Grizzlies wrap up a promotion-packed first homestand with a Team Photo giveaway to the first 2,500 fans at Chukchansi Park on Sunday, April 10th. The giveaway will coincide with the first Sunday autograph session of the 2011 season.

Stay safe on the job with your very own Grizzlies Hard Hat, presented by Ironworkers Local 155. The stylish, new items will be given to the first 2,000 fans through the gates on Saturday, April 23rd.

The organization presents the first of its two bobblehead giveaways with Madison Bumgarner World Champion Bobblehead Night, presented by Fresno Pet ER, on Saturday, May 21st. The first 2,000 through the gates will have the chance to celebrate the young flame-throwing lefty who spent the first half of last year in Fresno before helping lead the Giants to the 2010 World Championship.

The Grizzlies will celebrate the team’s contribution to the Giants’ title once again, with Buster Posey Rookie of the Year/World Champion Bobblehead Night, presented by Bayer CropScience. The catching prodigy will be memorialized holding both pieces of hardware he won last year, and his likeness will be given to the first 2,000 fans at Chukchansi Park on Saturday, June 4th.

Take home a collectable you can wear around town to show your support for the Grizzlies, with a Fresno Grizzlies Baseball Cap, given to the first 2,000 fans on Saturday, July 23rd.

The first 2,000 fans on Saturday, August 13th will receive a World Champion Grizzlies Players Card Set, presented by Disabled American Veterans. The set will include former Fresno stars who went on to help the Giants in their World Championship quest in 2010.

The fans will have their chance to get involved in deciding the giveaway decision-making process, as they will be encouraged to vote on the team’s official website, FresnoGrizzlies.com, for their favorite 2011 Grizzlies player to be recognized on a Jersey T-Shirt. The winning player’s replica will be given to the first 2,000 fans through the gates on Saturday, August 27th.

The 2011 Fresno Grizzlies Promotional Calendar is being released over the course of the next several days. Theme Nights and Theme Jerseys will be announced on Thursday and Celebrity Guest Appearances on Friday. Value-oriented weekday promotions will be announced next week.
