MLB: LA Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig Sets Four-Day Sales Record

Jun 12 2013, 2:19am CDT | by

Rookie Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers has broken the team’s four-day sales record for player merchandise over the weekend.

Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers broke the team’s four-day sales record for player merchandise over the weekend.

Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports the Dodgers sold more Puig-related merchandise from Thursday to Sunday than they had ever sold of any player over a four-day period. This beats out big-name players such as Manny Ramirez, Fernando Valenzuela or Hideo Nomo.

 Hernandez reports the team sold approximately 3,000 units of Puig-related merchandise in that four-day window. These include 1,600 t-shirts ($28), 400 “Viva Puig” t-shirts ($28) and 600 jerseys ($225 for the authentic version, $110 for the replica ones).

Lon Rosen, the Dodgers’ chief marketing officer, says Puig has the ideal characteristics of a player who drives merchandise sales.   

“He’s a real exciting player that drives merchandise. He’s a good-looking guy, great personality. What he does in the batter’s box, what he does on the field, he’s a five-tool player. He energizes the crowd.”

The Examiner’s Tarringo Vaughan says Puig has even filmed a television commercial with first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. Rosen says the team is committed to Puig staying true to who he is as a person and as a player who is dedicated to continued growth.

“We’re not going to throw everything at him at once because that puts a lot of pressure on him. We want him to have fun playing, keep working hard, learn to deal with the media.”

 

Puig made his MLB debut on June 3. In nine games played for the Dodgers, he has 16 hits on a .471 average with 10 RBIs and four home runs, per ESPN stats.

Oct 7 2014 3:29pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Don Mattingly benches Yasiel Puig in a must-win game. This is a questionable decision, but is he entitled to the benefit of the doubt? Prior to Tuesday's win-or-go-home NLDS game against the St. Louis Cardinals, Don Mattingly sat down his controversial center fielder Yasiel Puig. Puig is controversial in that he's (a) very, very talented, but (b) sometimes makes mistakes of overenthusiasm or under-thinking. He's ...

Yasiel Puig Must Transform from Enigma to Star for Dodgers to Win in October

Oct 6 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Whoosh, swish, whoooosh, whiff...what?    Yasiel Puig is in a fix. Again.    He earned the golden sombrero as the Dodgers barely escaped with a Game 2 win over the Cardinals to even the NL Division Series at a game apiece. Overall, he's working on five strikeouts in a row now—and counting—heading into Game 3 on Monday night.    Puig has swung and swung and swung, 16 times over his past five at-bats, without putting the ball in play. Weird part? He had two hits, a walk and was hit by ...
