Starting Lineup figures are returning to MLB stadiums in 2018.
The number of retro-themed giveaways may not come close to bobbleheads, but for fans of the figures, something is better than nothing.
A handful of figures are scheduled to be handed out to fans at specific MLB games. Things kick of at the end of May with Rhys Hoskins. Other current players include Jameson Taillon and Ryan Braun, both slated for July.
In June, it’s a throwback to the heyday of the line when the Oakland Athletics hand out a Dave Stewart figure. He has a few Starting Lineups from his playing days, the last of which was issued in 1991.
Like the original figures, don’t expect a lot of detail on the 2018 Starting Lineup MLB stadium giveaways. Since the line was resurrected a couple of years ago specifically for promotions, they’ve maintained the same simplistic details from the original run.
Here’s a calendar of confirmed 2018 Starting Lineup MLB stadium giveaways so you can keep tabs on what figures are on the way and when.
