At Dugout Mugs, we are honored to work with all 30 MLB teams and some of the best players in the game. Follow @DugoutMugs on social media for our First Pitch contests and text Rays to 85311 to be entered to win a slew of Tampa Bay Rays swag.
Being a Central Florida-based company, it’s hard not to root for the hometown Rays. After all, they are one of the hottest teams in baseball winning nine of their last ten games, and one of four teams with 30 wins so far this season!
“The Tampa Bay Rays are a first-class organization on and off the field and we’ve had numerous collaborations with them,” said Dugout Mugs Chief Marketing Officer Nate Lagos. “A lot of the players own our product and of course we have our collection in their team store at Tropicana Field.”
In the summer months, when things slow down we like to give away a ton of cool prizes and have fun with the fans because that's what it's all about. To celebrate their success and the success of Dugout Mugs, we want to continue to give back and with the help of a few players' wives, we were able to make this happen.
Being our local team we're always happy to support them and it's extra special when they return the favor. However, we can't go without giving a shoutout to the wives of Austin Meadows and Brandon Lowe, Alexis and Madison, who helped coordinate this effort.
"At Dugout Mugs, we are all about customer experience and fan experience, that's how we've built this," said Dugout Mugs CEO and Partner Kris Dehnert.
"So, I told them the Rays are on a run right now, the fans are loving it, let's do something fun, and give some stuff away."
Not only did they send us dozens of autographed cards from Austin and Brandon, but we also nabbed a handful of signed photos from Chris Archer and Randy Arozarena, along with a couple of sneaky surprises snuck in the mix as well!
Starting Tuesday, we are going to start picking people, multiple times a day, and texting them, "Congratulations you just won an autographed item from our giveaway."
Boom. It's that simple. That's all you have to do. No purchase required or anything. Simply text Rays to 85311 one time and your'e entered for all items until we run out, and that is about 50 items over the next two weeks.
In the end, we'll do our grand prize giveaway for a Randy Arozarena autographed poster from the ALCS, and just a heads up, it's pretty AMAZING!
"Customer experience is a major part of our business and it’s a small way of showing how much we appreciate our community," Lagos noted.
At Dugout Mugs, our mission is to celebrate and serve the heroes of the baseball community, by creating uniquely fun gifts that bring people closer to the game they love.
While this one was for the Rays fans, stay tuned as we have exclusive giveaways and signed items from the Houston Astros, New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics, and many more teams!
