A Justin Verlander High School Bobblehead?
By now, we've all seen that creepy, stuffed Don Zimmer bear that the Tampa Bay Rays are giving way, right?
Well, not to be outdone, the Richmond Flying Squirrels are doing a Justin Verlander bobblehead...and it will feature the reigning American League MVP and Cy Young award winner in his, wait for it, Goochland High School jersey.
Pretty cool, right?
What if I told you that the bobblehead of the Detroit Tigers hurler was going to be given away at the Double-A home of the San Francisco Giants?
Say what?!? One can only hope that he's immortalized with his sweet 18-year-old dirtstache.
Some other dates of note...the Flying Squirrels are bringing in Dale Murphy (April 12), Bret "The Hitman" Hart (June 12) and midget wrestling (September 1).
So, yeah, you've got that going for you, Richmond.
