The day has come that all Phillies fans anticipate and flock to the stadium! It’s none other than Phillies Bobblehead Night! This time Carlos Ruiz is at the front gates presenting his own bobblehead figure to rejoicing fans as they enter Citizens Bank Park.
What is so significant about this bobblehead giveaway by the Phillies? They have finally reached a milestone of 1 million nodding toys! The winner of the coveted 1-millionth prize received a gold-plated bobblehead! The Phillies have created 27 different bobble figurines, and this is the second for catcher Chooch. Notable bobblehead personalities include longtime best friends and beloved Phillies announcers, the late Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn, former Phillies player and manager Larry Bowa, Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt, and of course the one-and-only Phillie Phanatic.
The opportunity of sporting their own bobblehead figure is an honor and excitement for Phillies players to poke fun at the nodders. Cole Hamels will have his second bobblehead debut later this season.
