Reviewing, by team, it seems that Lakewood has the best promotions schedule, with Reading coming in a close second. The BlueClaws' kids eat free promotion is too huge. The orginality nod goes to the IronPigs, however, with the plungers and the maracas! The Threshers don't seem to have their promotions schedule listed on their web site yet.
