- On-Field Promotions are abundant and popular around Minor League Baseball.
- At every level across the country, some exciting things are happening during games. However, the excitement is not always from the game itself, but in-between innings.
- Each stadium features it’s own “promos” that are interesting and clever.
- On-Field Promotions can range from “Hilarious” to “You’re not even trying”.
