The Toronto Blue Jays released their promotions and events schedule for the 2018 season and it even features a Marcus Stroman shimmy wobble bobble giveaway at the beginning of June.

The promotional team went above and beyond the call of duty, this season as the Blue Jays released their upcoming giveaways. Here are some of the important dates to mark on your calendar for the upcoming campaign if you’re into Blue Jays swag.

The Blue Jays kick-off the festivities with the Honda Opening Weekend where the Jays will be offering a Honda t-shirt, magnet schedule and a Justin Smoak bobblehead over the course of the opening weekend in March.


On April 18th the Jays will turn back the clock with a Back-To-Back World Series sweatshirt giveaway for all the loyal fans of yesteryear.

The April swag doesn’t stop there with a TD “Bringer of Rain” t-shirt giveaway on April 26th and a Blue Jays plaid raglan handout two days later on the 28th.


On May 10th the Thursday Night in the Six theme continues as fans will receive a t-shirt presented by TD.

May 13th will be a favourite for the kiddies as there will be a Kevin Pillar caped replica jersey giveaway. It doesn’t get any better than a “Superman” jersey with a cape folks.

The rest of the month features another t-shirt promotion along with a towel and sunglasses giveaway closing out the month.
