First Look: Vin Scully Bobblehead

From a Dodgers press release:

Hall of Fame Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully will hold his first-ever Tweetcast, taking over @Dodgers for tonight’s game against the New York Yankees at 4:00 p.m. PST. Scully will have full control of @Dodgers and its 140-character tweets. Fans may join the conversation and ask him questions using the designated hashtag - #VinScully. The 140 Club on MLB.com (MLB.com/the140club) also will have a live stream of the best tweets from Scully’s Tweetcast.

Scully, 85, has been with the Dodgers for 64 seasons, the longest tenure of any broadcaster with one sports team in professional sports history. He was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 1995, the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2009 and has been named National Sportscaster of the Year three times.

The Dodgers just unveiled a first look at the “retro style” Vin Scully bobblehead set for July 25 (vs. CIN, 7:10 p.m.) on Twitter via @Dodgers.

The first 50,000 fans in attendance on July 25 will receive a Vin Scully presented by Bank of America bobblehead. This marks the Hall of Famer’s second Dodger Stadium bobblehead. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.dodgers.com/tickets or by calling 866-DODGERS.

What's that pose from?

(Is it blasphemous to say I kinda don't like it?)

It looks like he could be announcing the starting lineups from the field.

That said, I'm still gonna get it. I just don't like it as much as the near-perfect first one.
