First Look: The Infield Bobblehead

Via Dodgers April 10-15 Playbill
For those of you who made it out to Dodger Stadium this week, you probably were given the first playbill of the year, which has a beautiful black and white picture of the '62 team holding their hats over their hearts on the cover. 


I rarely read the playbill, in fact, when I get it at the front gate I usually toss it in my back seat and don't think twice about it. I had three hours to kill before the game started on Opening Day, so I actually skimmed through it. What caught my eye was on page 3, a picture of the first three bobbleheads the Dodgers are giving away this year. Of course we've already seen the Drysdale/Wills bobble, but this was the first time the Dodgers showed pics of the Orel Hershiser bobblehead and the infield bobblehead of Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Bill Russell and Ron Cey.


It's a low-res picture, but from what I can tell they did a pretty good job on all of them. Check out Davey Lopes' little afro!  I know the Orel Hershiser is a full-size bobblehead, but I'm not sure about the infield. Either way, I'm very excited about all ten bobbleheads the Dodgers are giving away this season. Don't forget, that first giveaway is in two weeks!

    2. Tnx for tipping me about the pic in the Playbill. I got one the day after opening day (when I came by car). I really have to get me Orel and Vinny. Hmm... preferably all of them :)

    3. Getting all ten is going to be tough. Maybe you can work something out with Enrique again.

    1. I did get the mini plan. I think it's still possible with a fine Sharpie on the helmet.

  5. The Dodgers are having some nice bobbles again this year. I'm still waiting for a pic of what the Snoopy booble will look like at Yankee Stadium.
