Baseball Appreciation Event at Dick's - Holiday Edition
While planning for the 2018 season is just around the corner, those of you receiving this email have been strong partners with Dick’s Sporting Goods for years now. Because of this relationship, we invite you and your league members to join us for a Baseball Appreciation event the weekend of December 9th.
We recognize this year will be unique due to the transition of the new bats and would like to give families the opportunity to save as we suspect the new bat will be a popular gift for many baseball families this holiday season. Using the attached flyer/coupon, your families will save 20% off their entire purchase as they gear up for the holidays!
We hope your league can take advantage of the opportunity and the savings and we thank you and appreciate your continued partnership as we look ahead to 2018 and beyond.
