It’s been a bad year for giveaways at Dodger Stadium.
On Friday, the team announced that because of “unforeseeable circumstances relating to shipping and customs control,” approximately 15,000 Matt Kemp figurines that were to be given away at Dodger Stadium on Sunday “will not be available for distribution.”
Instead, approximately 25,000 remaining figurines will be given out Sunday. Another 15,000 fans will receive vouchers. The fine print:
From Sept. 1-28, the vouchers will be redeemable at the Top of the Park Merchandise Store at Dodger Stadium during games and on non-game days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. Fans will also have the option of mailing their vouchers into the Fan Services Department, and the figurines will be sent to them at the address specified on the voucher. Details for redemption by mail will be printed on each voucher.
On July 10, a truck carrying Hello Kitty travel mugs did not make it to Dodger Stadium for distribution as scheduled, and vouchers were issued instead.
