We stop just short of calling this the “All-New” Gameops.com Podcast, but we did update the format. Use the form below if you have any comments of feedback.
We start with a promotional review including a Xavier University promotion that caught Pat Walker’s attention. Cudo highlights the Chicago Bears jersey page,a Tampa Yankees game that almost became a circus, a ticket-driving puppet giveaway in Boston, The Cyclones Sid Finch Bobblehead Night, the Chihuahuas Valentines Night, and Memphis sports teams sharing some Memphis-love.
Then Benjamin Hill from MiLB.cmo joins the podcast to update his recent travels and notable promotions.
A new feature called the #TuesdayTip with Matt Heuer debuts and Matt shares how to maximize a celebrity visit.
Last month Cudo traveled to Minnesota and caught up with Assistant General Manager of the Saint Paul Saints Scott Bush who spends a couple minutes on the podcast talking about their most popular on-field promotion.
Pat and Jon then give Best of Nominations to a couple baseball mascots and a Minor League baseball team from “The best minor league city in the county”.
And before the guys wrap up with a handful of Shout Outs, we hear from the First Class section with a quick update from one of the most celebrated and popular halftime acts Simon Sez Steve Max.
