‘Tis the season for hilarious promotional giveaway announcements.  Fans look forward to their teams performance, but also circle their calendars for the more unusual promotional items, like a Nolan Ryan/Robin VenturaYu Darvish, or Kirk Gibson bobbleheads (not liked by himself).  Or their beloved manager as a Mr. Potato Head.  Tampa Bay Rays fans have circled August 2, 2014 (vs. Angels) as the day to make sure they’re among the first 20,000 fans (as if they ever draw more than that) to receive a first edition Joe Maddon Mr. Potato Head.  Why he is wearing a glove, I don’t know, but why not?

Rays fans love their be-speckled manager, who has led their franchise to three playoff appearances the past four years, plus their franchise’s only American League Pennant in 2008.  They can also snag a set of Joe Maddon wine glasses or a Joe Maddon hoodie drawstring bag.

I’m sure there will be many more amusing promo items, stay tuned!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
