Taking a Look at the Delmarva Shorebirds' Announced Giveaways for 2017 Season

In case you missed it, the Baltimore Orioles' Low-A affiliate, the Delmarva Shorebirds, announced their 2017 season giveaways last week and today we will highlight some of the those giveaways for you.

The Shorebirds made the announcement via press release late last week.

You have heard me say it before, if you vacation in Ocean City, Maryland, I highly suggest taking the time one day to make the short drive to catch the Shorebirds in action, and this year's giveaways back up that statement.

Delmarva will be giving fans such things as bobbleheads, emoji T-shirts for kids, hats, posters and so much more in 2017.

The home opener is set for Thursday, April 13 and the first 5,000 fans will receive a magnet schedule. If you head to Arthur W. Perdue Stadium the following night, the first 1,000 fans will receive a very unique Jersey Ralley Towel, which replicates the Shorebirds' orange Friday home jerseys that they will wear every Friday home game this season. That orange Friday jersey will again be part of a giveaway when the Shorebirds give a draw string bag to the first 1,000 fans on June 2, that will also look just like the orange jersey.

One of the giveaways that really caught my eye as an Orioles' fan is the "Shore to the Show" poster giveaway set for April 28 that will honor the 95 former Shorebirds that have made it to the big leagues. Fans will see a lot of familiar faces on that poster.

If you recall, the Shorebirds held a vote on their Facebook and Twitter accounts for their hat giveaway, presented by Spicer Bros. Construction Inc. The winning hat, which is a slick-looking black and gray hat, will be given away to the first 500 fans on May 11. There will be three other hat giveaways over the course of the season as well.

There are a total of four different bobblehead giveaways in the 2017 season for the Shorebirds and they are listed below:

  • Friday, June 23 - Zach Britton Bobblehead
  • Thursday, July 13 - Mystery Bobblehead Giveaway (early arrivals will receive random bobbleheads that the Shorebirds staff have collected from other sports teams, universities and companies from all over the country)
  • Friday, July 14 - Manny Machado Bobblehead Giveaway
  • Friday, September 1 - Jonathan Schoop Bobblehead
There is also a giveaway on Friday, August 11, that will feature a mini bobblehead of Sherman, the Shorebirds' mascot.

The Shorebirds' 2017 giveaway schedule is stacked, and if you get the chance, be sure to head to the ballpark for one of them.
