Two very exciting and fun parts of the World Series festivities are Pin Trading and the Team Gift Bag Exchange at the Opening Ceremony! Pin Trading builds camaraderie and promotes state and local pride. Your pin should be designed to reflect your team, any of your slogans or team logo, age group and your state or city affiliations. The average team comes to the World Series with approximately 300 pins with an average size of 1 1/2” to 1 3/4” in size. They can be designed with glitter, lights or a variety of other elements. They are a very reasonably priced memory of the fantastic event! Contact Dragonaire at 866-252-4752 (or click on their logo below or email firstname.lastname@example.org) for free artwork and the best prices. As a special offer to all of the SEAA teams, any team purchasing 300 or more pins 1 5/8” or larger will receive a free full-color 3’ x 5’ parade/dugout banner with grommets!
The Gift Bag Exchange is another fun activity that will happen at the Opening Ceremony. Should your team choose to participate, you would provide 12-15 small gift bags with items representative of your city or state. Your team will be paired with another team and the fun begins to see what you trade for! Your coach will receive an email the week before the Opening Ceremony to let you know which team will be your trading partner! The value of the bags should be limited to about $7-10 each.
