"We have traditional family days on Sunday when we allow families to run the bases. We used to only kids run the bases but we had grandmas and grandpas get upset so now we allow anyone to do that," Schnacke explains.

Also new this year, bobbleheads are back. On specific games, fans will receive bobbleheads of some Clippers all-stars.

Fans will also see new jerseys worn on Fridays.

The Clippers will be called the Valeros each Friday at home games. It is part of MiLB's Copa de la Diversion program, which features 72 teams who change their name and logo to connect with the Latin community.
