Giveaways at the ballpark created my favorite days at baseball games when I was little, and it’s still the same — Whether it’s the mini bat or the magnet calendar, I like them all.
The Oakland A’s had a great T-shirt giveaway planned for Saturday, Aug. 2, to hand out 10,000 “La Potencia” T-shirts in honor of their slugger Yoenis Cespedes.

Oops. It looks like there will be a bunch of little kids wearing 2014 Denver Broncos Super Bowl tees — and now they will have Cespedes A’s shirts…
