Normally we select a single promotion to honor during awards season, but this year the Lehigh Valley IronPigs blew that model out of the water with a trio of noteworthy promotions. The team is the winner of the Best Promotions in the 2013 Ballpark Digest Annual Awards.
2013 Promotions of the Year: Lehigh Valley IronPigs
Announcing the 2013 Ballpark Digest Awards
It's that time of year again: We want to hear your nominations for the 2013 Ballpark Digest Awards, to be announced in September.
2012 Promotion of the Year: Home-Run Derby, Charleston RiverDogs
Home-run derbies are integral parts of All-Star Games, but the format has staled in recent years. By moving the competition to the USS Yorktown flight deck and bringing in some celebrity flash, the Charleston RiverDogs won Best Promotion of 2012 in the Ballpark Digest Awards.
2012 Organization of the Year: Pensacola Blue Wahoos
Forty sellouts, an enthralled fan base and a successful ballpark opening adds up to a very good debut season, making the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (Class AA; Southern League) our choice for the 2012 Ballpark Digest Organization of the Year.
