As we get closer to the start of the baseball season, more and more teams are announcing their promotional schedules. The Dodgers released theirs earlier than most of the other teams, and announced that they will be giving away ten bobbleheads in 2012. Let's take a look at some of the other teams that are giving away bobbleheads in the upcoming season.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are giving away one bobblehead in 2012, a Joel Hanrahan All-Star Bobblehead on May 12 to all fans in attendance. They were also the first team to show a picture of the bobble.
The Cincinnati Reds have four bobblehead nights scheduled. Joey Votto Gold Glove on May 12, Sean Casey on June 23, Jay Bruce All-Star on July 18 and Johnny Cueto on August 4. All four bobbleheads will be given to the first 25,000 fans in attendance.
The San Francisco Giants are giving four bobbleheads next season as well. Sergio Romo on May 5, A 2002 Players Bobblehead on June 30, Madison Bumgarner on July 15 and Pablo Sandoval on August 26. All four of these bobbleheads will be given to the first 25,000 fans in attendance.
The Philadelphia Phillies will give two bobbleheads away. The first is a Toyota Cliff Lee on June 4 and the second one is Hunter Pence on August 21. Both bobbleheads will be given to all fans in attendance.
The Oakland Athletics will only be giving away two bobbleheads in 2012. Rolllie Fingers gets the first of the two on April 21. The second bobblehead is a 20th consecutive victory Scott Hatteberg bobblehead on August 18.
It's still early in the offseason. Once more teams announce their promotional schedules, I'll post which bobbleheads they'll be giving away.
