The Tampa Bay Rays released their promotional schedule recently and one of the more interesting giveaways is a Joe Maddon gnome.
“It’s somewhat overwhelming to be characterized in gnomedom like that. It’s really difficult to describe that feeling that someone has at that moment. I’m pleased, I’m honored, I’m humbled by the entire event. And hopefully I won’t scare too many kids” said Maddon of the gnome.
Maddon’s gnome features his signature glasses, a Rays sweatshirt and a pointed hat. It will be given away on April 24 when the New York Yankees come to town.
