Orioles "Bobblehead" of the Week- Frank Robinson Statue



Prior to the Orioles' game against the A's on Saturday, April 28, the team honored Frank Robinson with a large statue in the centerfield picnic area. It was the first of six statues that will be debuted over the course of the season to honor the six Orioles Hall of Famers who have their numbers retired by the team. The team is calling it the "Orioles Legends Celebration Series" and you can find more information about it by clicking the link. 

To coincide with the full size statues, the team is giving away miniature replica statues. And they are nice. Check out the Frank.











I can't wait to add the other five to my collection. Brooks was to have had the statue unveiling today but it has been pushed to the end of the season due to his recent health issues.

The mini statue looks just like the real one. Great job by the Orioles on both!

Looks nice. There's much better resemblance between the mini statue and the full size one than most bobbleheads have to their subjects. :)

Completely agree, real nice looking statue!

That is pretty cool. The Royals gave out mini-statues a few years ago, but I missed out on all three.

I got mine through eBay and paid through the nose. It showed up yesterday and I'm pleased with it. Funny you posted this the day mine made it to my bobble/statue shelf.

Very nice.

The Yankees gave out a series of statues a few years ago. Wish I got them. They now command a lot on ebay. Would have looked great with my bobbleheads.
