Just when you think bobblehead giveaways at MLB stadiums couldn't get any more ridiculous, the Kansas City Royals are upping the ante a bit in 2013. This season, the Royals will be having three separate promotions giving away bobbleheads of their racing condiments: ketchup, mustard, and relish.
The ketchup bobblehead will be given out on May 25th against the Angels, the mustard bobblehead will be given out on June 22nd against the White Sox, and the relish bobblehead will be given out on July 20th against the Tigers. It's worth noting that the Royals only have four bobblehead promotions planned for the 2013 season, and three of them are these condiment bobbleheads. The other one, which is the only one featuring an actual baseball player, is a Billy Butler Silver Slugger themed giveaway on May 4th against the White Sox.
So despite trading for James Shields and Wade Davis, despite going all-in with a young core of players, the Royals promotional team will be focusing on mid-game entertainment this year as opposed to the players that the fans are paying their hard-earned money to see. Good job, good effort.
