Nostalgia Drives Nearly All of the NL West Giveaways

As part of our in-depth look into the best freebies and promotional items being handed out across the MLB this season, we dissected all of the NL West giveaways fans can expect throughout the coming months.

A recurring theme was found across the board in the NL West giveaways: nostalgia. Three of the division’s five teams are celebrating milestone anniversary’s this year, leading them to jump at the opportunity to celebrate with free swag. Both the Dodgers and Giants are celebrating 60 years in their cities while the Rockies turn 25. Special commemorative items are on the docket at their ballparks ranging from statues and blankets to jerseys and baseball cards. The Padres also jumped on the bandwagon, offering several free memorabilia focusing on their 1998 roster to signify 20 years since they won the NL Pennant.
