Sure, it’s baseball season. But do you remember what comes with that? Bobblehead season.
The Cincinnati Reds recently announced its initial slate of collectable bobblehead giveaways that are available to ticket holders for specific games at Great American Ball Park. Five “Super Saturday” games will feature the bobbles. The 2022 season’s lineup includes:
May 7 vs. Pittsburgh Pirates: Jedi Joey
The Reds’ lifelong stalwart (who wants and deserves some major post-season action) wears a long brown Star Wars Jedi robe over his uniform while holding a blue lightsaber.
May 28 vs. San Francisco Giants: Tyler Stephenson
The Reds’ young catcher kneels at the plate while holding a ball and glove.
July 2 vs. Atlanta Braves: “The Cowboy” Jeff Brantley
The Reds broadcaster and former reliever dons a pinstriped uniform with a “C”-adorned cowboy hat, true to his nickname.
July 23 vs. St. Louis Cardinals: Vintage 1960s-style Mr. Redlegs
One of baseball’s most recognizable mascots, Mr. Redlegs sports the old-time boxy cap that perfectly complements his “Pringles” mustache.
The Cincinnati Reds typically add other bobblehead opportunities for special ticket packages throughout the season, such as 2021’s Jerry Garcia and Star Wars bobbles.
