July 12 vs. Reds — Henderson Alvarez Bobblehead (First 10,000 fans)
This — now, I need this in my life. Henderson Alvarez is just great, and this bobblehead looks just like him. It also features his awesome, old-school windup he always does on the first pitch of every game. The Marlins are only doing two bobblehead giveways in 2015, and Alvarez is absolutely deserving of the first one of the year. He was the team’s ace last year in the absense of Jose Fernandez, and don’t forget he threw the most recent Marlins no-hitter on Closing Day, 2013. (That was also the day of my birthday, so Alvarez will always have a special place in my heart.)
Whether you’re young or old, bobbleheads are just the best. Please, get to the ballpark early on Sunday, July 12 when the Marlins host the Reds. And then please mail me your Henderson Alvarez bobblehead.
