While the spring season technically began on March 20th, purists of America’s pastime know the season doesn’t truly kickoff until opening day!
For 2017, this was held on Monday, April 3rd—although the festivities continue all week long. Coinciding with this time-honored tradition, we’ve partnered with El Artista and their new “Big Papi” cigar—a cigar/baseball match made in heaven!
Contest Theme: Cigars & Baseball
Cigars and baseball folks—doesn’t get much better!
Get in the spirit of the opening day games this week and post your cigars-meet-baseball pics for a chance to win the new, super-premium Big Papi cigars, blended by the man himself!
To enter the contest:
- Take a cigar photo that fits the cigars/baseball theme
- Post your picture on the Cigar Dojo app
- Include hashtag #openingDay
- Share your entry on social media – see how
There will be TWO grand prize winners this week! Both winners will receive MAJOR prizes worthy of, dare we say, the Major League… (sorry, had to get a pun in there somewhere). Each winner will receive a full box of the new Big Papi by David Ortiz. The cigars feature a Dominican-based blend and are crafted at El Artista’s boutique factory in the DR—blended by Ortiz himself (along with the knowledgable guidance of El Artista’s master blenders) to suit his ideal palate.
The cigars were made in a singular, heavy-hitting, 6″ × 54 toro size that will smoke through nearly an entire baseball game! Cigar Dojo went in-depth with this premium blend in January, awarding the cigar an impressive 90-point rating, saying:
