Here’s a first look at the Cubs’ 2019 Wrigley Field promotional schedule

... at least, what’s out there so far.

The Cubs haven’t made any official announcement of their promo giveaways for 2019 and there’s nothing listed on their website page which would have this information.

Nevertheless, the current Cubs pocket schedule does have some preliminary information on giveaways, so I’m posting it here, since it’s out there.

I remain disappointed that once again, the Cubs are limiting giveaways to 10,000, including bobblehead days. I wrote about some of the crowd control issues they have had on some of these days after the Javier Baez bobblehead day last July, where many thousands were lined up when the gates opened. Some who arrived that early left without bobbleheads. Most teams give away at least 20,000 items; the Dodgers usually have 40,000 for most giveaways.

A minor thing, perhaps, but the Cubs could do better. There will be five bobbleheads in all this year, but none of them have yet been announced as to which player or players will be honored. Last year one of the bobblehead giveaways was chosen via a fan vote on social media, and that could happen again this season.

Anyway, here’s what they have on tap, so far. 10,000 for each except as noted:

April 8: Magnet schedule (30,000)
April 13: Cubs Star Wars blanket
April 14: Replica Wrigley Field statue
