The One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame
It’s official…life-sized bobbleheads are coming to FNB Field.
In our 29 seasons of baseball since rejoining the Eastern League in 1987, we have seen many great players wear the Senators uniform. This year we’re starting a new tradition by recognizing the truly great players from our history in a unique way. This year we’re beginning The One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame. This season, there are three Senators legends being enshrined and each will receive their very own life-sized bobblehead. The life-sized bobbleheads will be on permanent display at FNB Field, this year in different locations, then in the future, in their very own permanent, high-profile location.
“This is something we are so excited about,” said Senators President Kevin Kulp. “Being our 30th season, we wanted to begin a Hall of Fame Concept, but we didn’t want to do it in the traditional sense. Nothing wrong with that, but we wanted to do something special and something that hadn’t been done before. And who doesn’t want a picture with a giant life sized bobblehead??”
In recognition of the Senators 30th season, the organization has selected Vladimir Guerrero as the first inductee into The One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame. In the 29 seasons the Senators have played baseball since 1987, he’s generally recognized as the best player to put on a Senators uniform. Guerrero’s induction into the Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame is Saturday, April 16. The first 1,500 fans that night will receive a replica of Vladimir’s life-size bobblehead.
Not only will fans receive Guerrero’s bobblehead, but Vladimir himself will be here on April 16 for the unveiling and induction into The One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame. It is Guerrero’s first time to visit with Senators fans in Harrisburg since 1996 when he left the Senators to join the Montreal Expos.
Our 2nd induction into The One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame is Cliff Floyd on Saturday, July 9. Floyd played for the 1993 Senators and along with Guerrero, was an Eastern League MVP. A replica of Cliff’s life-size bobblehead will be given to the first 1,500 fans through the gate on July 9. Floyd is also expected to appear at his unveiling and will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans.
The last inductee into our first One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame class is Bryce Harper. His induction ceremony is on Saturday, August 13 and the first 1,500 fans will receive a replica of his life-size bobblehead. Unfortunately, the reigning National League MVP will be unable to attend due to his being busy that night with the Washington Nationals.
The bobbleheads that will be on display are actually life-size as Guerrero’s is 6’3”, Floyd’s is 6’5” and Harper’s is 6’3”. Each bobblehead will be holding a commemorative plaque. These are the first three inductees into the Senators One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame. We plan to induct players annually into the One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame.
