The Master List Of 2013 MLB Bobblehead Giveaways

It’s probably needless to say for someone who spent the time going to each MLB team’s individual promotional schedules, but I enjoy bobblehead nights.  And this season, the MLB teams have a combined 95 bobblehead nights.

Most are current players, but you have the occasional broadcaster (Cardinals announcer Mike Shannon, complete with a sound chip in the bobble), mascot (Mr. Met is knitting in his as part of Stitch N Pitch, because who doesn’t want to go to a baseball game and knit scarves and hats – this is real) and retired player (the A’s Reggie Jackson looks the coolest, although the Rangers Nolan Ryan bobble picture isn’t available yet).

Some other highlights include a Dodgers Rick Monday bobble honoring the time he ran onto the field to stop fans from burning the American Flag:

Hanley Ramirez’s “I see you” bobble (what?)

and a Coco Crisp “Coco lean” bobble (what? again)

The Royals are giving out a series of Ketchup, Mustard and Relish bobbles.

Winner of the Most Ironic bobble has to be the Brewer’s Ryan Braun bobble sponsored by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, because that’s how he got so strong, not from all of those (alleged) PEDs.

Those relevant to the Phillies include the Ruiz and Hamels bobbles that the Phillies are giving away, a Juan Pierre Marlins 20th Anniversary bobble and, not a bobblehead, but the Cubs are giving away a Ryno the Rhino Build-A-Bear.  While we’re talking non-bobblehead promotional giveaways, the Giants are giving away wine bottle stoppers, a full set including each of their announcers.

The Dodgers and Brewers are leaders in the clubhouse, each with 10 bobblehead nights, followed by the Rockies with 9, although they haven’t announced what any of those 9 bobbles will be.

The Red Sox don’t have any bobblehead nights announced, and the Yankees, Padres, Orioles and Astros have only announced 1 each.

My favorite so far?  Reggie Jackson, but the Harold Baines ChiSox is right there too.
