Orioles Bobblehead of the Week- Brian Matusz



Brian Matusz was the latest Oriole to be honored with a bobblehead at Camden Yards when the O's gave away his bobblehead to the first 20,000 fans 15 and over last Saturday, August 6 prior to their game against the Blue Jays.


Here's some pictures of the bobble box...

Back with info and such
Sides are both the same and show his name, number and signature


The bobblehead's face doesn't look much like Brian,


 but they did a pretty good job displaying his pitching motion.


Matusz has been pitching at AAA Norfolk for approximately the past month, so this marks the second consecutive season that the team has issued a bobble of a player who is currently playing in the minors (after the Reimold mini-bobble last year). 

It's tough to predict how players will turn out over the course of a season, but it's unfortunate that this happened to the O's in two straight years. Not to mention the Jake Arrieta shirts that were given away at Thursday night's game on the eve of Jake's season ending elbow surgery.  It has to get better though, am I right Orioles fans? 

(crickets chirping) Is there anyone out there?

Sweet bobble. The Orioles seem to do a really good job.

I agree with Greg. This is a good looking nodder.

Maybe next year the O's can do players from the past, at least they won't have to worry about this happening again.

The O's do a pretty nice job with the bobbles they give away. I just wish that they did more of them.

And retro bobbles would be awesome!
