With September upon us, the majority of Major League Baseball (MLB) teams already know if they’ll be making the playoffs or should start thinking about next year. But whatever their record and rank, they all face the same challenge- How to put butts in seats?!
For all 30 MLB teams an easy answer is better food, drinks, and facilities. But to draw the attendance of those who need something more, the tried and true answer is GIVEAWAYS. Here are 10 of this season’s more eye-catching fan giveaways:
Kansas City Royals: Cheesy Corn Brisket-acho T-Shirt

The list could go on forever, but these are enough for now.
