The Thunder have saved their best bobblehead announcement for last.
Originally listed as a “TBD” on the promotional schedule, the team has revealed that the first 2,000 fans who attended the August 26th game will receive a dual bobblehead of prized pitching prospects Dellin Betances and Manny Banuelos.
Just like the Ian Kennedy and Joba Chamberlain dual bobblehead from a few seasons ago, this one will also be sponsored by DQ Grill and Chill.
August 26th is also Latin American Night, which…as the Thunder’s T-Mail newsletter points out, is appropriate for the giveaway given that Banuelos is from Mexico and Betances is of Dominican Republic ancestry.
Visit trentonthunder.com for ticket info…because no, I can’t get you one.
