The crack of the bat and the cheer of the crowd may signal the start of baseball season, but ballpark giveaways, theme nights and minor league hijinx are indications of an equally important time of year: Golden Bobblehead season.
Minor League Baseball announced the first round of nominations for their Golden Bobblehead Awards, the grand prize of minor league promotional greatness, which are awarded following the season at the annual Promo Seminar. Top promotions from each month will be selected before the overall winners are recognized at the Promo Seminar, which is being hosted this year by the Iowa Cubs in Des Moines.
