Bobblehead Schedule, Broadcasting update
The moment every Thunder fan has been waiting for has finally arrived — the 2010 bobblehead schedule has been released.
This year’s list features six former Thunder players who helped the Yankees win the 2009 World Series — pitchers Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes, David Robertson, outfielder Brett Gardner, infielder Robinson Cano and catcher Francisco Cervelli.
After those five are given out, the Thunder will close the season by distributing a bobblehead of the Yankees top prospect, catcher Jesus Montero.
The 20-year-old Montero spent just 44 games with the Thunder, compiling a .317/.370/.909 line with nine home runs and 33 RBIs before suffering a broken finger that ended his season.
Below are the dates for each bobblehead’s release:
Chamberlain — April 23
Hughes — May 14
Gardner — June 11
Cervelli — July 2
Cano — July 16
Robertson — Aug. 6
Montero — Sept. 2
The Thunder have sifted through the applications and demo tapes, and are close to naming a replacement for former broadcaster Steve Rudenstein, who left the team to take a position with Rider University.
An announcement on his replacement should be made by next week, the team said yesterday.
