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!

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.
