Come Bobble with Alex…
So, we’ve been doing the Royals Hall of Fame series bobbleheads pretty consistently, but it has been a few seasons since we’ve had a current player as a bobblehead. Well, all that will change on Saturday, June 21 when Gordon is portrayed in classic bobblehead form!
To commemorate the occasion, we are holding a “Bobble with Alex Sweepstakes” on royals.com…and all you have to do is enter for your chance to win!
The prize: you could win four (4) Dugout Plaza tickets to Alex Gordon Bobblehead Night when the Royals host the San Francisco Giants. But, it gets better…
You could also win the opportunity to watch batting practice and enjoy a special meet and greet with the Royals third baseman as well as take home four (4) Alex Gordon bobbleheads!
Enter here now and then a random drawing will be held June 18 to determine the winner. Bottom line, don’t miss out on your chance to “Bobble with Alex!”
Speaking of Bobbleheads: The first bobblehead promotion of the season – one of those great HOF bobbleheads! – is actually coming up sooner than you think! The “Big John” Mayberry bobblehead promotion (presented by Dodge to the first 20,000 fans) is Saturday, May 31 when the Royals play the Cleveland Indians. Do you have your tickets yet?
A.L. Player of the Week: Jose Guillen earned American League Player of the Week honors for May 12-18. The hot-hitting Royals outfielder batted .458 (11-for-24) with four runs, five doubles, two homers and 13 RBI during the week – the team posted a 5-1 record during the span. It’s the second time in his career that Guillen has taken home the honor (May 9, 2004) and the second Royal this season, joining Brian Bannister, who shared the honor with Raul Ibanez in mid-April.
