So far in 2010 the Birds are 1-3 on T-Shirt Tuesdays, 2-1 on Bobblehead Nights, and 1-1 during 2110 Eutaw Street games.
With apologies to my stat-conscience baseball friends for the small sample size, the Orioles clearly need to give away more Bobbleheads at the ballpark. And as you'll see in a moment, the Birds should feature Adam Jones in promotions more often.
The splits for players look like this:
Adam Jones' struggles during 2110 Eutaw Street games are inconsistent with his otherwise sterling performances on nights when he's the featured player in a promotion. Perhaps he just hates sharing the spotlight.-On T-Shirt Tuesdays, featured batters have gone 1-8 at the plate while featured pitchers have a blown save and no wins.
-On Bobblehead Nights, featured batters not named Nolan Reimold have gone 4-9 at the plate with a home run and 2 RBI.
-During 2110 Eutaw Street games, Nick Markakis and Adam Jones are a combined 2-14.
Jones went 3-5 with a home run and 2 RBI on Adam Jones Mini Bobblehead Night on June 24. Meanwhile, he went 1-2 with a home run on Adam Jones T-Shirt Tuesday on April 15, 2008.
