The Albuquerque Isotopes have unveiled their highly anticipated 2016 promotional schedule. The upcoming season is loaded with 12 fireworks shows, multiple jersey auctions, and 22 giveaways including replica jerseys, various hats, bobbleheads, and much more.
HOLLY HOLM NIGHT
The promotional schedule's main event will be Saturday, April 16 as the Isotopes honor Albuquerque's own Holly Holm. "The Preacher's Daughter" will step out of the octagon and onto the diamond and show off her arm by delivering the game's ceremonial first pitch. Fans will also have the chance to bid on commemorative, autographed Holly Holm-themed jerseys via silent auction. Please note these jerseys will not be worn on-field. The first 3,000 fans to enter Isotopes Park that night will go home with their very own Holly Holm bobbleheads, and the evening will culminate with a fireworks show presented by Lovelace Health System.
"BETTER CALL SAUL" NIGHT
Fans of Albuquerque-based "Better Call Saul" better circle August 6 on their calendars, as the Isotopes will don special jerseys featuring Jimmy McGill (aka Saul Goodman). Fans will have a chance to go home with these unique jerseys by participating in a silent auction.
