The White Sox unveiled their promotional giveaway schedule for the 2012 season, complete with a mix of items for adults and kids, along with ones that are actually practical. The schedule:
White Sox knit bomber hats (April 14)
Mother's Day totes (May 13)
Robin Ventura bobbleheads (May 26)
Southpaw mini plus pals (June 3)
Commemorative 2005 World Series canvases (June 9)
Kids XL 1972 replica jerseys (June 24)
Kids chest protector backpacks (Aug. 5)
White Sox camouflage hats (Aug. 11)
Those are a good start. Got any other promotional ideas for the Sox? Post 'em in the comments. I'll get started:
Alexei Ramirez replica Gold Glove award: He'll receive one, too, because Gold Glove voting is stupid and he should've won the award at least once already. He'll celebrate the day by making three spectacular plays ranging to his right and still miss that night's top 10 plays in favor of that one popup Derek Jeter caught.
Paul Konerko No. 14 crown: Fit for The King.
Dayan Viciedo toy tank: Can actually shoot laser beams, so probably not meant for kids. But that doesn't mean they can't have fun with it!
Jawin' Johnny Danks hand puppets: Sponsored by Jim at South Side Sox, of course.
Ol' Yaz bobblehead: This one was Hawk's idea.
