CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Today the Cleveland Indians announced their promotional schedule for the upcoming 2013 season.

The promotions will feature new Indian Nick Swisher with a replica jersey on August 24th, and also there will be another blast from the past – bobbleheads of former Indians Albert Belle (June 1st) and Omar Vizquel (July 8th).

Tribe veterans Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley will both also have replica jerseys, Kipnis on June 15 vs. Washington, and Brantley on July 27 vs. Texas.

The promotional slate will start opening day with a magnet schedule giveaway vs the Yankees April 8.

The Indians’ annual Hall of Fame weekend is set for June 22, and in another nod to the team’s storied tradition, fans will get a replica of the Indians Hall of Fame plaque of Rocky Colavito, one of the team’s most popular former players and owner of 190 homers in an Indian uniform, on August 10th.

Aside from player jerseys, fans will have eight other opportunities to pick up Tribe gear: T-shirts depicting the team’s 1974-77 alternate jersey, (May 4 vs. Minnesota), 1917-18 road jersey (May 29 vs. Cincinnati), and 1973-78 primary logo (Sept. 2 vs. Baltimore) will be given away, as will a 1902 replica road jersey (July 13 vs. Kansas City).

Also included in this year’s schedule are Block C rally caps (May 18 vs. Seattle), 1904 Replica Block C road caps (July 6 vs. Detroit), Indians mesh trucker caps (July 31 vs. Chicago) and Indians winter beanie hats (Sept. 7 vs. New York Mets).

Popular promotional staples also will return for 2013: Rock N’ Blast, a two-night fireworks spectacular and part of a 16-night fireworks schedule, is set for Aug. 9 and Aug. 10.

Fans’ canine friends, meanwhile, can watch the team take on Kansas City on June 17 and Sept. 9 as part of the Indians’ now-annual Puppypalooza events.
