The lockout is still dragging on, but at least we’ve got some official bobblehead news for the Guardians.

Even without the lockout, the release of the Cleveland Guardians promotional calendar would be enough to get most fans amped up. But when we’ve been collectively starved for anything baseball-related through this cold, dark winter, the release of the promotional calendar is akin to finding a bucket of cold water when you’ve been stranded in the desert.

And with this being the first year of the Guardians’ existence, the excitement ramps up just a little bit more. For 2022, the team is giving fans three bobbleheads, three jerseys, and a variety of new Guardians merch, including a magnet schedule, car magnet, water bottle, sunglasses, a tote bag, and a lightweight hoodie WITH THE FLYING G LOGO.

As far as the bobbleheads go, the players haven’t yet been announced, but you can probably assume Jose Ramirez will be one of them.

The lineup also includes the usual Progressive Field fare, including ten Sugardale Dollar Dog Nights, 18 $2 Pregame in the District nights, 15 fireworks nights, and eight Kids Fun Days.

And if the typical stuff just isn’t enough for you, the Guardians are introducing something called Family Value Packs for all Sunday games this season. With this package, you’ll receive four tickets and $40 in loaded value to spend on merchandise or concessions for $80. Up to four additional tickets at $20 per ticket, with $10 in loaded value each, can also be added.

Single-game tickets will also start being available to purchase on Monday, February 14 at 10 a.m. EST.

Now, this promotional calendar is all well and good, of course, but the question remains just how much of a baseball season we can expect, given the increasing animosity surrounding the lockout.

But that’s a dark thought for another day. For now, let’s just bask in the bobbleheads.
