The Cleveland Indians released their promotional schedule for the 2013 regular season, and as expected it is rife with giveaways, discounted food and fireworks. Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley will be given the replica jersey treatment this season along with newly acquired outfielder-turned-first baseman Nick Swisher. For Hall of Fame weekend, the Indians will be presented with a plaque of Rocky Colavito. And on the bobblehead front, the Indians will once again go the nostalgic route by having featured giveaways of former outfielder Albert Belle and former shortstop Omar Vizquel. Popular promotional staples also will return for 2013: Rock N’ Blast, a two-night fireworks pectacular and part of a 16-night fireworks schedule, is set for Aug. 9 and Aug. 10. Sugardale will present 15 Dollar Dog Nights, the first on Friday, April 12 with the Chicago White Sox in town. Capping things off is the August 24th celebration of John Adams, the team’s drummer who will be celebrating his 40th anniversary.
