As someone who goes to a lot of Rangers game, I can tell you with 100 percent confidence that when the club offers a bobblehead promotion — no matter how ridiculous — the crowd is ravenous and in their seats early hoping to be one of those lucky 15,000 to secure their figurine.
Well, they're at it again as the Rangers announced nine bobblehead promotions for the 2016, which they were quick to point out was a "club record" for bobbleheads given away in a season. For real.
Anyway, here's a quick look at what you'll be able to land and then try to pawn off on eBay for hundreds of dollars (see the Yu Darvish strikeout counter bobblehead of a few years ago).
AT&T Jeff Banister A.L. Manager of the Year Bobblehead on April 19
Dr Pepper/Kroger Rougned Odor Bobblehead on May 14
Nitto Tire Blue Dot Bobblehead on May 29
Dr Pepper/Tom Thumb Cole Hamels Bobblehead on July 10
Medical Center Arlington "Franchise Four" Quad Bobblehead on July 30
Nitto Tire Green Dot Bobblehead on July 31
Nitto Tire Adrian Beltre Removable Helmet Bobblehead on August 14
Takis Elvis "Landrus Calrissian" Star Wars Bobblehead on August 27
Nitto Tire Red Dot Bobblehead on September 3
I can tell you right now you will will need to arrive at 4 p.m. to get that Beltre one, and probably the same for the Star Wars crowd for that Landrus Calrissian one. Then, they'll probably have to pay people to come to get that Red Dot one (spare!).
So plan accordingly, folks.
