San Diego Padres
Being based in (and deeply rooted) in San Diego, one of the partnerships we’re most proud of is with our hometown Major League Baseball club. For the past six years we’ve partnered with the San Diego Padres to do, what has become, our signature “Friarknocks” giveaway. For one home game each Summer, the first 25,000 fans in attendance receive a pair of Friarknocks sunglasses, and every year we introduce a new design to add to the archive. These special shades have become highly coveted by hardcore Knock fans and Padres fans because they are not available for purchase—only way to scoop them up is by coming out to the old ball game!.
Over the years we’ve built a great working relationship with our Padres and have collaborated to do other cool things throughout the ball park like creating custom sunglasses for the San Diego Friar himself, co-hosting College Nights on the upper deck, sponsoring every home run and the “Knock of the Game”, and we’ve also been known to throw out a few first pitches. With Knockaround HQ only a stone’s throw away from Petco Park, chance are we’ll also roll through for the occasional day game!
We’ve got our 2017 Friarknocks giveaway date locked and loaded…so stay tuned for more info.
