Best of the Week? There have been a lot this week from Manny’s awesome play on Friday to Baysox Opening Night (when they were no-hit by three Harrisburg pitchers). For me, however, the arrival of my Jose Mendez bobblehead in the mail on Friday was my Best of the Week! Mendez is part of a series of bobbleheads created to commemorate next year’s 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues. The “Negro Leagues Centennial Team” will feature 32 stars from the Negro Leagues, which will be released throughout the year.
Jose will join Jackie and Hank on my bobblehead shelf.
