Vin Scully has finally agreed to get a Dodger Bobblehead!!

I came back from my Pilates class here at work to the wonderful news that Vin Scully has finally agreed to get a bobblehead!   With Sandy Koufax also getting a bobblehead, this is year is the best year for Dodger bobbleheads!   Mike Scioscia is also getting a BBH.  I think is right since he only played for the Dodgers.  He was a favorite of mine back when he played.  I loved watching him block homeplate.    This will be Fernando’s 4th BBH I believe.   I think Fernando already had enough bobbleheads but if the Dodgers want to give another one, I’ll take it!

Here is the list of Bobbleheads for 2012

  • April 28, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #1 – Don Drysdale and Maury Wills
  • May 15, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #2 – Orel Hershiser
  • May 29, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #3 – The Infield, Garvey, Cey, Russell and Lopes
  • June 12, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #4 – Mike Scioscia
  • June 28, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #5 – Eric Karros   (On my birthday!) 
  • July 14, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #6 – Tommy Lasorda and Walter Alston
  • July 31, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #7 – Kirk Gibson
  • August 7, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #8 – Sandy Koufax
  • August 21, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #9 – Fernando Valenzuela
  • August 30, 2012 – 2012 Bobblehead #10 – Vin Scully

My blog came in at #21 in 2011!  Thank you all that have visited my blog!  

When I think of #21,  I think of Roberto Clemente.  50th Anniversary

He signed with the Dodgers for $10,000, but never got to play a single game in Brooklyn or Los Angeles.   A rule back then in effect required that any player signed for more than $4000 had to stay on the parent club for a full season. The Dodgers attempted to keep Clemente’s profile low, but the keen eye of the Pittsburgh Pirates general manager knew Clemente and he was selected by the Pirates for $4,000 on Nov. 22, 1954.

Emma, I love bobbleheads! I’m sure you’ll post pictures of them as you go through the season, hmm? From the list, it sounds like #3 (the infield) must have four heads! Definitely a must-have!

I’m from NYC, but I might have to fly out just for that. I have been a Vin Scully fan, but I became an even bigger one when I found out he went to my high school.

That is too cool! Very nice of Vin. I was already planning on going to the Sciocia bbblehead freeway series game but now I think I may have to go on July 31st too. It Seth’s and my anniversary but the Angels are inconvenienty out of town. However, with the Dodgers in town and giving away a Gibby bobblehead, I think our mission is clear. :)

Sue,
We will have single, double, e and quadruple heads. lol. no triple heads.
.
Mateo,
If you do, let me know. I love to show you our old but beloved Dodger Stadium.

Kristin,
When Gibby got a bobblehead in Arizona, I was contemplating driving there or flying to get the bbh. They did play the Dodgers. Looking forward to seeing you again at Dodger Stadium. Oh and I’ll remind you of the Dodger fan forums/blogs game in Feb.
.

I bet you’ll be the first one to get Vin’s bobblehead, Emma!

Jane,
You bet I will be outside wating for the gates to open!

Nice! I look forward to seeing that one! They might need to invest in more plastic though when they mold the Fernando bobblehead. LOL!
