Dodgers Unveil The Names Of Six More Dodger Stadium Great Bobbleheads



Today the Dodgers announced six of the 10 bobbleheads they'll be giving away in 2012. From the Dodgers Twitter page:
Bobblehead #1: A dual bobblehead featuring two stars from the 1962 season, Maury Wills paired with Don Drysdale (4/28). 
Bobblehead #2: For the first time ever, three-time All-Star & Cy Young Award winner Orel Hershiser (5/15). 
Bobblehead #3: A quad bobblehead of the infamous Dodger infield of Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey (5/29). 
Bobblehead #4: The Dodgers all-time leading catcher in games played, and winner of two World Series rings, Mike Scioscia (6/12). 
Bobblehead #6: Hall of Fame managers Tommy Lasorda and Walter Alston will be honored together in a dual bobblehead (7/14). 
Bobblehead #9: 1981 Cy Young Award winner and Rookie of the Year, El Toro Fernando Valenzuela (8/21).
The first thought that comes to mind is "FERNANDO AGAIN?" I guess they have to give him one if they're  doing Dodger Stadium Greats. Besides that, I think I'm pretty pleased with these choices. The great infield of Garvey, Cey, Lopes and Russell getting a quad bobblehead is a great idea. I'm happy to see Mike Scioscia is getting one, as well as Orel Hershiser. I can't argue with the Lasorda/Alston dual nodder  either. I would have loved for Maury Will to get his own bobblehead, but I'm fine with him and Don Drysdale getting paired up. 


Along with Sandy Koufax on August 7, we now know about seven of the ten. I wonder who they have in mind for the final three. 


Any thoughts?

  3. I love the line up except for Valenzuela. Do we really need another one? Hatcher deserves a bobble head.

  4. Everyone is complaining about the Fernando night, but I expected it, so...whatever.

  5. the inclusion of multi-player bobbleheads makes me think they are going to be smaller than what we are used to. have they confirmed the size at all?

  6. They haven't confirmed the size yet, but I think you're right, they're probably gonna be small, like this Don Zimmer bobblehead.

  14. Sinatra Dodger fan - Yeah, mini bobbles on the multi-player, full size on the single. I'm trying to get confirmation on this.
