Shaikin Highlights Other Dodger Bobbleheads

Whoops, forgot to catch this one: Bill Shaikin, over the weekend, listed 18 bobbleheads given away this baseball season in Southern California alone. It's a pretty useful list.

Dodger fans already know about the Dodgers' six bobblehead giveaways this year: Clayton Kershaw (May 17), Don Mattingly (June 1), Hong-Chih Kuo (June 14), Andre Ethier (July 7), Fernando Valenzuela (July 26), and Duke Snider (August 9).

Shaikin did call my attention to these gems, however:

  • Clayton Kershaw, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, May 20 ("Same bobblehead, but $12 for best seat in house")
  • Adrian Beltre, Inland Emplire 66ers, June 11 ("Beltre played for the San Bernardino Stampede at age 17")

Clip and save this list!

I grew up with the San Bernardino Spirit and The Bug. Man I miss the Bug. The 66ers/Stampede stadium is okay, but I miss Fiscalini Field.

dammit, Giants already up 4-1 in the fourth inning vs. Pittsburgh.

Pirates had two on and none out, and then two RISP with one out, and then two straight Ks ended the threat.

4-1 Giants after 4.

They're offering a pretty sweet 8-game mini plan that includes all 6 bobbleheads. I'm tempted to pull the trigger. (You also get the Laker hat and the Fernando blanket thrown in.)
