William “The Refrigerator” Perry is coming to the Duck Pond!

The Mallards have begun to release their 2007 tentative promotional schedule two promotions at a time every weekday.

The promotion for the last game of the year will be announced first while working towards Opening Day on May 31, 2007.

In conjunction with his appearance, the Mallards will be wearing football-type jerseys.

Moving to Fridays this year, the Working Mans Special presented by ESPN radio 1070 will once again include a ticket, 2 beers, and 2 hot dogs for 10.70. This special offer is open to the unemployed as well.

The promotions for Monday, July 23 include:
This Monday and every Monday throughout the season will also feature “Two-For-One” specials presented by Budweiser and 94.1 WJJO. Domestic taps, sodas, and hot dogs will all be 2 for 1 through the fifth inning.

Fans will be able to vote at to decide which giveaway the Mallards will have on Opening Day.

The choices for the Opening Day giveaway are: sweat bands, bumper stickers, commemorative baseballs, and a mystery item.

Stay tuned to every weekday until April 25 for updates on next summer’s promotions!
