The Tampa Bay Rays today announced the addition of an Evan Longoria Game of Thrones® Bobblehead to their 2017 promotional schedule as part of Major League Baseball's new partnership with HBO's fantasy drama Game of Thrones®. The giveaway will be distributed on Game of Thrones® Night to the first 15,000 fans prior to the Rays taking on the Boston Red Sox on July 8 at 4:10 p.m. at Tropicana Field.
The Rays are one of several Major League Baseball teams set to participate in the MLB-Game of Thrones® partnership this summer with each individual club planning its own unique tie-in, which will include development of collectible and co-branded merchandise, ticket packages, giveaways, theme nights and social media events.
Game of Thrones® returns for a seventh season on Sunday, July 16 on HBO. The novel-turned-television show has won 38 Primetime Emmy® Awards since its debut in March 2010, more than any series in Emmy® history.
