Visual Representation of What Had Previously Only Appeared in Print

While I greatly enjoy writing “Promotion Preview” on a weekly basis, it is a column that clearly has its limitations. Mainly, there is only room for a handful of photos. Yet, one’s understanding and enjoyment of many of these promos would be greatly enhanced if there were an accompanying image to each write-up.

Baby steps, readers, baby steps. While this utopian vision of copious photo representation remains a long way off, at the very least I can use this blog to close the gap between this ultimate goal and present-day reality.

Alright, enough talk. I mean, really, dude. Just get on with it. All this blither blather just to set up a photo of a Pajama Jersey is a little much.

also incorporate stars and half-moons in the trim of the lettering to
add to the “nighttime” feel. The “Baron head” logo that is on the left
sleeve will feature the Baron wearing a night-time stocking cap.

Moving on…readers may recall last week’s Promotion Preview column, in which I mentioned the Lowell Spinners Jacoby Ellsbury World Series coin. Well, Spinners Director of Media Relations Jon Boswell was kind enough to send along a photo of this high-quality item:


That’s the front of the coin, depicting Ellsbury as a Spinner in 2005. The back shows Ellsbury amidst the aftermath of the Red Sox’s 2007 World Championship:


Pretty sweet, right?

Indeed. And I, for one, would like to run more promotion-related photos on this blog. Send ’em to
