Dogs and Vets Enjoy the Ballpark

The Philadelphia Union and MLB’s Padres effectively created in-game promotions from their cardboard cutouts.

Teams are getting creative beyond filling stadiums with cardboard cutouts.  The Philadelphia Union and MLB’s Padres effectively filled section with two initiatives and got people talking.

First in Philly the Union hosted cutout of adoptable dogs in a section to highlight some lovable pets who need a home.

The Padres have a rotational section behind home plate (the good seats) where different groups are placed for games. Obviously they are prominent on TV and a talking point for broadcast, effectively creating a Military Tribute promotion.

The Padres have a special section called the Barkyard where fans can submit their pet photos so their furry friends can be seen taking in the game too.
