Sept. 13 vs. Nationals — Jose Fernandez Figurine (First 10,000 fans)
Jose Fernandez already has a bobblehead, and now he gets a figurine in his likeness. It’s not entirely clear what the term “figurine” entails; is it like a bobblehead where the head remains in place? Is it a doll or more like a statue? We don’t know yet, but it’s going to look like Jose Fernandez, who by September 13 will have something like a 1.92 ERA and be fully recovered from his Tommy John surgery. Since it’s intended for 10,000 fans and not just kids, it’s possible this figurine will be less like a toy or doll. But it’s Jose Fernandez, and thus should be immensely coveted by Marlins fans.
