Very nice. Lots of great promotions going on in 2012.

Is the Cueto bobble going to have his head facing away from his body, since the description says “his signature wind-up”???…

I thought the May 26 game was a BP gold glove trophy, not Rolen? Did they change it?

It would be really cool if Larkin gives his speech at either noon or 4pm on July 22, and the Reds simulcast it on the Jumbotron. Kind of a bummer that it’s a home game that day.

Is there going to be a “Birthday Babies” day?

Gonna have a day for Larkins induction to Hall of Fame? Need to have a sluggers day any Redleg that hit over 30/40hrs in a season, promo could be a t-shirt!
