MLB’S LOS ANGELES DODGERS TO HOST CRYPTO GIVEAWAY IN LATE SEPTEMBER By KEVIN O’BRIEN
In a recent blog post, the Los Angeles Dodgers said they are hosting what is purported to be “the first Crypto giveaway in sports.” The opportunity will take place on September 21st when the Dodgers play the San Diego Padres.
The first 40,000 fans who enter the stadium will receive a card with a code that gives people a chance to download a digital bobblehead of either pitcher Clayton Kershaw, third baseman Justin Turner, or pitcher Kenley Jansen to their Ethereum wallet.
According to the Dodgers, the distribution process will be random, but there will be roughly an equal number of Kershaw, Turner, and Jansen code cards available for fans to receive.
Lon Rosen, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of the Dodgers, said the team hopes the new giveaway “piques the interest” of fans while helping to spur on a new era of “digital collectibles and promotions.”
