Hall of Fame pitcher Don Sutton will be honored with a Bobblehead Night on June 6, when the Dodgers host the Atlanta Braves.
Sutton, now a Braves announcer but for 16 seasons a mainstay of the Dodgers' rotation, has been added to an expanded lineup of 10 bobbleheads for the 2013 season.
The collection consists of Hanley Ramirez on April 30 (vs. COL), Matt Kemp on May 14 (vs. WSH), Jaime Jarrín on May 25 (vs. STL), Sandy Koufax on June 27 (vs. PHI), Adrian Gonzalez on July 11 (vs. COL), Vin Scully on July 25 (vs. CIN), Hideo Nomo on Aug. 10 (vs. TB), Rick Monday on Aug. 27 (vs. CHC) and Magic Johnson on Sept. 12 (vs. SF).
Sutton, inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998, still holds the Dodgers franchise record for wins (233), starts (533), games (550), strikeouts (2,696), innings pitched (3,814) and shutouts (52). He won 324 games in his career and was a four-time All-Star, and the Midsummer Classic's MVP Award in 1977.
I never expected Don Sutton to get one of the ten bobbles, but I think it was a great choice by the Dodgers.
