Team Promotions

I was bored, so I did a quick count of the number of home games teams have some sort of promotion scheduled this year. I just used's schedules. These count all kinds of promotions, whether it's bobbleheads or fireworks or just theme nights or dollar hot dog nights. Whatever they are.

One problem is that not all team sites have a separate promotional schedule, so I had to go off the normal schedule and count games with the "promotion" asterisk. Games that are rained out don't appear to keep their asterisk. So these may not be exactly accurate, but they certainly signify a trend.

The numbers in parantheses are the number of additional games the team had promotions for in the preseason. I can't say that I'm particularly surprised by who came out on top (although I'm surprised and skeptical about the last team. Well, not who the team is, but the number I counted.)
