Let’s have a bit of fun, shall we?
As most of you know, I love bobbleheads.
They’re my favorite ballpark giveaway and I’ve got a collection of over 100 of them from various ballparks.
With the release of bobbleheads for Albert Almora Jr., Carl Edwards Jr. and Chris Coghlan, every Cub who played in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series now has his own bobblehead. Did you forget that Coghlan played in Game 7? He did! He pinch-ran for David Ross after Ross walked in his final MLB plate appearance in the top of the ninth. Coghlan was forced out by Jason Heyward.
There’s also a new bobblehead honoring the South Bend Cubs’ 2019 Midwest League championship:
Bobbleheads are colorful and fun and you have a whole day to celebrate them. Here’s the article I wrote in September 2019 on my visit to the Bobblehead Museum in downtown Milwaukee — and seriously, if you’re ever in that area, definitely stop in. It’s fun and costs only $5.
Do you have some bobbleheads you like? Post photos of them in the comments.
Full disclosure: The Bobblehead Museum sent me samples of the four bobbleheads pictured in this article.
