Orioles Bobblehead of the Week- Buck Showalter Preview
It's a classic "manager leaning on the dugout railing" pose that I've seen before, but I don't think the Orioles have ever made a bobblehead with this specific pose, so I'm excited to add it to my collection.
The O's still haven't released any images of the Brian Matusz bobble that will be given away on August 6, but I hope they post one soon. Maybe they're waiting for Matusz to actually appear in a game before releasing the image. And I'm still holding out hope for a late addition to the promotional schedule of an O's Vladdy bobble, but knowing how the team does these things, I'm not gonna hold my breath.
One thing the O's changed this year is that both bobbleheads are being given away on Saturdays, whereas in past years, they normally gave away bobbles on weeknights to bring more people out to the Yard. I feel like this will result in a lot more people with bobbleheads who don't particularly want one, so maybe I can snag a few extras that are left behind at the end of the game. I just hope that they aren't coming out of the boxes broken like many of last season's mini-bobble giveaways.
See you at the Yard on June 25th and August 6th!
