This afternoon, the Giants will be giving out a Bruce Bochy bobblehead to the first 20,000 fans in attendance.
This is not the first time that the Giants have done a bobblehead promotion of their manager. If memory serves me right, they had one for Felipe Alou when he was on the team.
I’ve always found the idea of having a bobblehead for the manager a very unique idea. Most times it’s either a player or the mascot, but the Giants are very unique in the situation.
In past years, the Giants have given away bobbleheads of people that have no association with the team. They’ve had one for Carlos Santana, Charlie Brown and this year, Lucy Van Pelt and Jerry Garcia.
It’s a very interesting concept that the Giants would have such promotion. Then again, it’s a great marketing strategy if people want the bobbleheads.
I just find it surprising that the Giants would have so many bobbleheads this year. Well, if people want it, then I suppose it’s a good idea.
In fact, I think I might be able to get an extra ticket for today’s game. Maybe I’ll get me a Bruce Bochy too!
