Orel Hershiser Bobblehead Night


We're already five days removed from the Orel Hershiser bobblehead night, so before any more time goes by, let's get to the Bulldog.


On Tuesday, May 15, the Dodgers gave away Orel Hershiser bobbleheads. Presented by Coca-Cola, this bobblehead was scheduled to be given to the first 50,000 fans in attendance. The stadium was pretty empty that night, and I highly doubt there were 50,000 people. Not really sure why there were so few people, but I would assume it's because the Lakers were playing or maybe it's hard for a lot of the newer fans to care about a Dodger hero from 24 years ago. Who knows? All I know is I was happy to get my hands on this one.


















What really stands out on this bobblehead is the look on Orel's face. That's the classic Bulldog stare. I think this could be one of the best Dodger bobbles ever. It's definitely in my top five. They did such a good job on this one, even Vin Scully commented a few times on how good this looked.


Up next, The Great Infield.

  1. Did you get your bobblehead signed? He was at Frank and Sons on Saturday. He is such a cool guy.

    1. I don't get bobbleheads signed anymore, but I did get his Clinton Dodgers bobblehead signed last year. You can see that here.

  2. Some people didn't want to honor Orel that day.

  3. The stadium was packed at first. But surely people started leaving the stadium by the 5th,6th, and 7th inning. It was a dead crowd that night.

  4. Yeah, the Dodgers also were out of it early. I was shocked that there were so few fans there too. I showed up 2 hours early to avoid the Wills-Drysdale fiasco and got none of it.

    1. Same here. I think things'll be back to normal for the Great Infield.
