D-backs announce 2013 promotional schedule

The Diamondbacks on Wednesday announced their 2013 promotional schedule, which includes three bobbleheads, a Wade Miley garden gnome and more than a dozen additional promotional items throughout the season. Individual tickets for each game, including Opening Day on April 1 against the Cardinals, will go on sale March 4.

The first of the three bobblehead giveaways, on June 8, will feature the Aaron Hill #BiCycle Bobblehead that will honor Hill for his two cycles last season. The other two bobbleheads will feature fan favorites Paul Goldschmidt on Aug. 10 and Miguel Montero on Sept. 14, with the Montero bobblehead giveaway coinciding with Hispanic Heritage Day.

New this year, the D-backs will host a street festival prior to games on April 1, April 13, May 11 and Sept. 14 that will feature food trucks, D-backs inflatables and several activities for fans before they enter the stadium.

Also on the promotional schedule are several $5 College Nights, School Family Nights, Choir Nights and Senior Days as well as Stitch & Pitch (April 13), four educational field trip days (April 29-May 2), an event for Girl Scouts (May 11), a Camp Day (June 19), a Cheer Night (August 31) and a Band Night (September 28). Three Mystery Ball events also are planned for April 27, June 8 and August 10, and Chase Field will again host postgame fireworks shows, presented by Gila River Casinos, following 10 Friday night home games.
