Ten Dodgers Bobbleheads To Be Given Away Next Year

So let me count here: Frank McCourt, Jamie McCourt, Drew McCourt, Steven Soboroff, Howard Sunkin,... hmm, I've still got five more "greats" to select.

Oh wait, scratch that. We're starting the Dodger Stadium Greats Bobblehead Series starts with Sandy Koufax:

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers have upped their Bobblehead giveaways for 2012 to 10 as part of the Dodger Stadium Greats Bobblehead Series, highlighted by the inclusion of Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax on Aug. 7 against Atlanta.

Marking the 50th anniversary of Dodger Stadium, the club will implement the Greats Series. The names and dates of the other Dodgers legends to be honored with Bobblehead giveaways will be unveiled leading up to the home opener, which will be April 10 against Pittsburgh.

The Dodgers will play at home for five holidays in 2012, with a promotion scheduled for each -- a tote bag on Mother's Day (May 13), $1 Dodger Dogs on Memorial Day (May 28) and Labor Day (Sept. 3), a sports bag and postgame catch on Father's Day (June 17) and fireworks on Independence Day (July 4).

Friday Night Fireworks also returns in 2012. A Matt Kemp replica jersey will be given away on Sept. 4, and Viva Los Dodgers will be a season-long celebration each Sunday, culminating in La Gran Fiesta on Sept. 29.

I also count:

  • 13 Friday Night Fireworks nights (they will also have fireworks on July 4th),
  • two $1 Dodger Dogs days (Memorial and Labor Day),
  • two fleece item giveaways (no detail besides "item"; knowing my luck, it will be a fingernail warmer),
  • eight "specialty" items (including a Mother's Day Tote Bag, Father's Day Sports Bag, and Hello Kitty Giveaway),
  • three kids items (including a Kids Jackie Robinson Sweatband, which I hope has sweat from the Dodgers legend absorbed into it),
  • and a whole crapload of Viva Los Dodgers Days that occur in the parking lot prior to the game.

Give it away, now!

Is the fathers day catch worth it or more of a headache.

Way worth it, Fernie. Yeah, it gets pretty crowded, so the actual "catch" portion is tough to pull off, but there's still a ton of room to move around. Nothing tops the feeling of being on that field, though.

I SO want the Koufax bobblehead

I so want the Dodgers Albert Pujols bobblehead

3 minute fireworks shows again? I'm guessing yes because this deal is done under McCourt. You are better off going to downtown Disney for free to get your pyro fix. Why announce the bobbles if you won't even say what they are? We inch closer and closer to a Ryan Theriot bobblehead

A bobblehead for each of the prospective buyers approved by Blackstone and MLB?

I'll never get that coveted Josh Rawitch bobble head now. (cries)

What I got I wanna put it in Ned.
