2009 Bobblehead Schedule Released, Tickets On Sale 2/2

January 21, 2009

From the Thunder website…

The players to be featured on five of the seven bobblehead doll giveaways scheduled for the 2009 season were announced on Wednesday morning.

The bobblehead schedule will kick off on April 29 as Thunder Manager Tony Franklin is featured holding the Eastern League Championship trophy.  Next up is Joba Chamberlain on May 13, followed by Phil Coke on May 20, Brett Gardner on June 3 and Austin Jackson on June 17.

The remaining two dates, July 29 and August 19, are still to be determined. 

Sadly, it will appear that the highly demanded Mike Ashmore bobblehead will have to wait another year.  Well, it’s probably for the best, I’d hate to see them waste a perfectly good bobble…wait, they made a Jose Tabata one.  Never mind then.

Now…if you want tickets to those games, or any other — including the 2009 Eastern League All-Star Game — tickets go on sale at 9:30am on February 2nd online, by phone and in person.

Of course, you can go to the Thunder’s official website for more information.
