Notable 2017 bobblehead games throughout the Southeast, plus a few others around the country. Taken from the long list of bobblehead games I am compiling. Games I’m considering are in red.
With spring training in full swing and opening day approaching, I’m getting more excited about SunTrust Park. Wish I could win tickets to the March 31 Yankees exhibition. There’s a chance I could go anyway. I’ll be out of town for the home opener, the Rome bobblehead, the Matt Kemp bobblehead, and just miss the Heyward bobblehead at the beach. Kevin owes me some bobbles so this is the year to cash in.
I don’t want to pay $18.00 for parking, so I’ll have to figure out where to park. Costco? Sports Authority? Pappasitos? Perhaps I’ll take John Parkes to the Friday bobblehead games with me. Kevin will have a ticket for him. My sister and brother-in-law can come as long as they arrive before 4 pm.
So far this year I’ve struck out on UGA bobbleheads. One more remains – a guy I’ve never heard of. Not sure I want to fork out $15.00 to see the Dawgs play in SunTrust Park, though I’d like to get over there to buy my tickets at the box office to avoid the $4.00 Ticketmaster fee. Hopefully I can use my free GasSouth tickets to get the Freeman bobblehead. With bobbles being given out both August 25 and 26 I might have to miss the Middleton reunion this year.
On March 25 I’ll be attending a season-ticketholder open house at SunTrust Park, which should be fun. The Gwinnett bobbles look good. Too bad Knucksie isn't in a vintage uniform.
