Captains announce 2018 promotional schedule

(Eastlake, OH) – The Lake County Captains, the Class-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, have numerous exciting giveaways and promotions in store for fans this season. The initial list of giveaways include a fleece blanket, ball cap, bobbleheads of Francisco Lindor & Jose Ramirez, Omar Vizquel, and Bradley Zimmer, an Adult Jersey and the popular Youth Jersey.

The giveaways begin on Opening Night, Thursday, April 5. The first 1,500 fans through the gates will receive a Captains Fleece Blanket, presented by Lake Health. In addition, all fans attending the game on Opening Night will receive Captains 2018 Magnet Schedules compliments of Wickliffe Country Place.

Friday June 15, the Captains will give away a Captains themed ball cap presented by Lake Health to the first 1,500 fans through the gates.

The Captains will feature three exciting bobblehead giveaways this season. The bobblehead fun starts on Saturday, June 30 when the first 1,500 fans into the ballpark will receive a duel bobblehead of the Captains 2012 double-play combination, and current Cleveland Indians infielders Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez, presented by Lake County Solid Waste District.

On Friday, July 6, the Captains will give away another bobblehead featuring former Captain and projected Indians’ Opening Day centerfielder Bradley Zimmer, presented by Sysco.

On Friday, August 3, the Captains will give away perhaps their most anticipated bobblehead of the 2018 season.
