Five AL Teams Release Bobblehead Schedules

Let's take a look at five more teams that have released  promotional schedules with bobbleheads. You can see my first three posts here, here and here


The Tampa Bay Rays are going bobblehead crazy, giving away seven in 2012. This is the most by any team except for  the Dodgers 11 bobblesheads. The first of seven is Kyle Farnsworth(May 20) followed by Desmond Jennings(June 3), Joe Maddon(June 15), James Shields(July 1), Matt Moore(July 22), DJ Kitty(August 5) and the last one is TBD(September 23).


The Baltimore Orioles traditionally have been one of the better bobblehead teams in the majors, but this year they only have one. That bobblehead is a fans choice bobble on September 29.



The Seattle Mariners have  four scheduled bobbleheads this year. No Larry Bernandez this time, but they do have Ichiro(April 20), Dustin Ackley(May 25), Felix Hernandez(June 15) and Randy Johnson/Dan Wilson 2012 Mariners Hall of Fame dual bobble.


The Kansas City Royals have many promotions scheduled in 2012, but only two bobbleheads. Buck O'Neil(July 21) gets the first of two, Eric Hosmer(August 18) the second. KC is hosting the All-Star game this season and they could've put out some nice All-Star-themed bobbles, maybe a George Brett or a Brett Saberhagen. I think they missed a good opportunity here.

The Texas Rangers just signed Yu Darvish, but the super-hyped import won't get a bobblehead this year. Instead they are honoring three others  with Nodders: Adrian Beltre(April 28), Ian Kinsler(August 12) and Manager Ron Washington(August 25).

  1. 11 Bobbleheads by the Dodgers? I thought it was 10. I hope it is ten because I bought the Bobblehead Mini plan and only got 10 tickets.

  2. The Rangers have a good line-up of Bobbles. The Beltre and Kinsler will be sought out by me.

    Also, who is DJ Kitty?

    1. I want the Beltre.

      Here's a pic of DJ Kitty along with a creepy Don Zimmer teddy bear.

  3. The Yankees are FINALLY giving out a bobble this season. It's a Snoopy one, so I'm sure it will be as coveted as the Peanuts line the Giants gave out a couple of years back.

    I will definately be there for that one.

    1. It's nice that they're honoring O'Neil. I wish the Dodgers had a Jackie Robinson.

      Yeah, I got my boblehead mini plan. I'm in Reserve 51.
