Spring means baseball season which is particularly popular in the Boston area. AiPT! is operated out of New England and we’re particularly excited for sports and nerd culture to come together this summer. The Red Sox will be hosting Game Day Events focusing on anything from the Grateful Dead to Game of Thrones.
Red Sox fans are at a whole other level and so are the excellent giveaways the team will be giving out this summer. Starting May 1 just in time for Star Wars Day on May the 4th some lucky fans will get a limited Xando Calrissian bobblehead. Two weeks later a special Cheers glass will be handed out and every few weeks even more cool swag will be going to fans coinciding with musical acts coming to town. Fans of WWE and Dustin Pedroia can get their hands on the limited edition Pedroia WWE bobblehead July 10th, for instance.
Check out all the goodies Red Sox Nation will be getting in the coming weeks below with more cool Game Day Events on the horizon.
