Gnome Quest


Bowie Baysox Manny Machado Garden Gnome GiveawayI’ve written previously about Bobble Mania and my Bobble Quests.  Recently, however, minor league teams have added a new one: The Gnome Quest.  This evening, the Bowie Baysox had a Manny Machado gnome giveaway for the first 1,000 fans.  From the line outside the stadium more than an hour before the game started, it would appear it was a hit. (Yes, I was in that line.)Line outside the stadium waiting to get Manny Machado Garden Gnomes

I’m sure one reason Manny the Gnome was so popular is that fans LOVE Manny the Ballplayer.  For years we’ve been counting on him to be the future of the Orioles, the “shortstop of the future.”  We like to compare him to Brooks Robinson and Cal Ripken.

It’s not surprising, then, that we like to collect all things Manny.  This year alone, the Baysox have had three Manny-related giveaways:  the Manny Machado bobblehead, the Manny Machado t-shirt, and, now, the Manny Machado Garden Gnome.

Not only do baseball fans love giveaways, we love Machado giveaways.  I think this video from the Bowie Baysox pretty much proves it:

Happy collecting!
