The Annual Bobble List

Livan Hernandez bobbleheadThis past Monday, I got my first in-park bobblehead of the year:  Livan Hernandez. This bobble had been on my calendar since before the season started. But I suppose you can’t say it was my first bobblehead for this year – before this year’s promotions schedules were even announced, I made sure I got Zach Britton and Jayson Werth – no more Jayson Werth incidents for this Baseball Sociologist! (It takes much less effort to get free bobbleheads with my annual purchase of ticket packs from the Bowie Baysox.)

Of course, these days my list gets scooped by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which has a much more extensive list than I do. But I still get a kick out of putting together my own list. However, over the next weeks or so, I’ll post more about this year’s major- and minor league promotion schedules.  After all, there is more to life than bobbleheads.

In fact, its not just heads that are bobbling this year. You can get a bobble waist (5/23), bobble biceps (6/27), bobble belly (8/9), bobble legs (9/5), and – I kid you not – a bobble butt (8/22 at the Wichita Wingnuts). Below is the list of bobbleheads, figurines, gnomes, and similar giveaways at Major League and Minor League Baseball stadiums this year (the bobble dates that have already passed appear at the end of the list). For now, the list does not include independent league teams, such as the Wichita Wingnuts. I’ll post those at a later date.

In the meantime, happy collecting!
