He talked about sending emails to every MLB team requesting fan packs or leftover giveaways. This got me thinking. So that night, I went out and sent emails to every MLB, AAA, AA, and High-A team. As of right now, I’ve gotten replies from the following teams, followed by their responses.
Blue Jays– I need to send a self-addressed, stamped envelope
Braves- Send them a Postcard
Cubs- Send them a Postcard
Giants- Emailed me a PDF Fan pack
Indians– Fan pack sent out to mail
Padres- Unable to fulfill Request
Phillies- Postal request
Rangers- Donation needed… $5 Donation made….
Tigers- No giveaways, but will mail fan pack
Twins- Send Postcard from hometown
Yankees- Send Postcard
California League Teams:
Modesto Nuts- Pocket Schedule
San Jose Giants- Pocket Schedule
Albuquerque Isotopes- No
Round Rock Express- No fan pack- 2012 pocket schedules can me mailed
Yesterday (Friday) I received two envelopes in the mail.
The first one was from the Cleveland Indians. (I forgot to get a picture of the envelope it was sent in)
Yeah… I guess it’s pretty cool… JK. I, honestly, am very surprised.
I opened it up to find it was a wall calendar that was a giveaway from April 16th-18th.
The White Sox hooked me up with some awesome stuff!
That’s it for now. I will continue to post new entries as I get packages from various teams and let you guys know what happens!
Remember, let me know if I should blog about my trip to Omaha. Thanks!
