02/08/2017 3:43 PM ET

A series of unique cap giveaways, an apron keepsake on "Bacon and Eggs" night and an early-season "Pigs to the Bigs" commemorative t-shirt highlight the 2017 IronPigs giveaway schedule. These items are in addition to the previously announced 10th anniversary giveaway collection and bobblehead series slated for next season, bringing the total number of announced giveaway dates to 28 for next season (with even more to be unveiled prior to Opening Day). Single-game tickets for the 2017 season presented by Capital BlueCross will go on sale beginning on Sat., Mar. 4, at 9 a.m. during the club's annual National Pig Day celebration at Coca-Cola Park.

This year's anticipated cap giveaways are listed below, with three of the four featuring a holiday theme:

  • Pink Cap giveaway to coincide with Mother's Day on Sun., May 14 at 1:35 p.m. (First 2,000 women 18 and older)
  • Youth Cap giveaway on Wed., May 24 at 7:05 p.m. (First 1,500 youth 17 and under)

  • Trucker Cap giveaway on Sun., June 18 to coincide with Father's Day (First 2,000 men 18 and older)

In addition to plenty of previously-announced 10th anniversary-themed giveaways in the season's opening month, there's also a 2017 Magnet Schedule giveaway (April 7), a "Pigs to the Bigs" t-shirt giveaway (April 18) and an Apron giveaway on the ever-popular "Bacon and Eggs" night on April 22 vs. the Toledo Mud Hens. The must-have "Pigs to the Bigs" t-shirt lists every former IronPigs player that has graduated from the Lehigh Valley and Coca-Cola Park to the Major Leagues.

Youth-oriented giveaways remain a staple of the IronPigs promo calendar with the following five items all slated for summer break:

A popular favorite, the IronPigs Wall Calendar, returns to the schedule on Fri., Sept. 1 for the first 7,000 fans. Additionally, the first 5,000 fans attending the late-season August 22 game at 7:05 p.m. against Syracuse will receive a 2018 Magnet Schedule.
