Interview conducted by David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer
There’s nothing that says you’re a fan like having a bunch of souvenirs for your favorite team. Hats, bats, balls, and novelty items are the way fans remind themselves of the memories they’ve had and the games that they’ve attended.
For many fans, their first, and sometimes their most cherished, souvenirs are the promotional items given away at games. Looking around my sons’ rooms, they have plenty of Angels’ gear such as their Nite-Lights, blankets, shirts, hats, and backpacks—all of which they received while going to games. Some items, such as the Bobblehead dolls, have become collector items.
What most fans don’t realize is that behind every promotional item is a team of people working to make sure that each and every promotional item is a success. They work months in advance of each promotional item, taking products from design to transportation to delivery in the stadium.
AngelsWin.com recently sat down with John Rozak, the Promotions and Events Representative for the Angels to find out more about how these items become part of the experience for fans at the stadium.
