First Look at the Reading Phillies 2012 Promotional Schedule

The summer should be a busy one for the Reading Phillies.  With the Eastern League All-Star Classic game on July 10th as the centerpiece of their promotional schedule, the Phillies AA affiliate released their "Top 30 Promotions of 2012" this week.  The calendar is packed with the typical minor league draws: food discounts, theme nights and autograph sessions.  In addition, there are a few notable SGAs.  Here are some of the highlights (sorry, no pictures have been posted):

  • Ryan Howard/Crazy Hot Dog Vendor Dual Bobble - April 5th
  • All-Star Classic Autograph Session and Home Run Derby - July 10th
  • Jimmy Rollins "Old School" Bobble - July 23rd
  • Vance Worley Garden Gnome - July 25th
  • Carlos Ruiz "Chooching" Train - August 14th
  • Reading Phillies Team baseball card set - August 25th
  • Harry Kalas Talking Bobble - August 27th

Also, collectors should take note to the "Reading Phillies Legend Photo" set that will be given away one photo at a time throughout the first part of the season.  The set features familiar faces who represented the team in the Eastern League All-Star game not so long ago:

  • Freddy Galvis ('11) - April 9th
  • Gavin Floyd ('04) - April 10th
  • Gio Gonzalez ('06) - April 11th
  • Mike Spidale ('11) - April 24th
