Mets, Phillies Freebies Among the Best in the NL East

With 162 games to their season, Major League Baseball teams need to find ways to keep people coming to the ballpark as the months pass. The tried-and-true solution to keeping up attendance? Giveaways, and lots of them. In fact, an estimated 1,800 promotional events are expected to take place across the league this season, from special theme nights, free giveaways, and more. We’re exploring the scheduled giveaway opportunities fans can look forward to in the coming months and breaking it down by each division. First up, a look at all of the NL East giveaways. 

The NL East – comprised of the Braves, Mets, Nationals, Marlins and Phillies – boasts plenty of giveaway opportunities. Between bobbleheads to jerseys and other team memorabilia, the NL East offers an eclectic mix of freebies. The Phillies take the title of most kid-friendly with giveaways like custom bucket hats, backpacks, headphones and water bottles aimed specifically at kiddos. By comparison, the Nationals aim to please an adult audience with their ages 21+ giveaways of a Budweiser-sponsored trucker cap and Oktoberfest stein. The Mets selection is the most expansive of the division, often giving away freebies during every game of a home series.
