Oh man it's happening, the Padres are letting fans announce their giveaway schedule one item at a time, just like last year.. The first item is my personal favorite, the Padres beach towel. I couldn't tell exactly what it was at first, maybe a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle's belt buckle, but it turns out it's home plate.
We are excited to announce a @padres promo item! Can double as a home plate for playing baseball at the beach! pic.twitter.com/sOzMuWCRFd— Padres360 (@Padres360) January 28, 2015
I can barely contain my excitement. My idea for a giveaway item would be like one of those stripper pens where if you turn them upside down their clothes come off, except different...
I wish the @Padres would give away a floaty pen where if you turn it upside down Ed Whitson's jersey comes off. pic.twitter.com/cyE7GetXIu— Gaslamp Ball (@gaslampball) January 28, 2015
We're currently waiting for the next big reveal, but we've been given a clue.

Man, that was a long break between announcements. I showered, ate dinner and watched a situation comedy in between tweets. The second item is a light-weight hooded sweatshirt, color:drab gray.
Fun facts: Hoodies = San Diego, right? It's a lightweight hoodie. #PadresPromos #fashion pic.twitter.com/xY80GdcKaa— Sac Bunt Chris (@SacBuntChris) January 28, 2015
Here we go again...a mini-replica of Petco Park. I wish they'd have shown a banana for scale.
