‘The cost of going to visit Dodger Stadium has increased for 2015, but the promotional schedule may tempt you to come out to see the Dodgers live especially if you like gnomes and Juan Uribe.
Of course bobbleheads are back for 2015, and there’s a certain third baseman who will be featured this season to my delight.
The first bobblehead giveaway game doesn’t happen until May, but the Clayton Kershaw bobblehead scheduled to be given away to the first 40,000 fans on Tuesday, May 12th versus the Marlins is sure to be worth the wait. The Dodger ace is recreated in bobblehead form alongside his 2014 Cy Young Award and 2014 National League M.V.P. Award.
THEN, on Saturday, July 11th is the bobblehead I have been waiting for. The elusive Juan Uribe bobblehead! The Dodgers still have yet to release the image of the coveted mini Uribe, but I’m hoping for bobbling jazz hands. It’s my most anticipated promotional item of the year, and I’m surely buying tickets for that game this summer.
A lot of fans are still waiting for a Nancy Bea Hefley bobblehead. I agree that the talented organist needs to be celebrated in bobblehead form.
The bobbleheads set to be given away for 2015:
May 12 Clayton Kershaw
May 23 Adrian Gonzalez
June 4 Kenley Jansen
July 6 Maury Wills
July 11 Juan Uribe
July 29 Yasiel Puig
August 13 Sandy Koufax
September 1 Justin Turner
September 16 Fernando Valenzuela
September 23 Vin Scully
There will also be a new Cy Young Collectors’ Pin Series on the promotional schedule sponsored by 76.
I’m happy to see a pin series, and I still remember collecting Dodger pins as a kid. There will be pin giveaways at the following games:

May 14 Sandy Koufax
June 18 Mike Marshall
August 10 Fernando Valenzuela
August 29 Orel Hershiser
September 14 Eric Gagne
September 20 Clayton Kershaw
Also making a Dodger debut on the promotional schedule is the Dodgers’ foray into the world of garden gnomes. Yes, there will be a Tommy Lasorda garden gnome giveaway on Monday, May 25th versus the Braves. I think we all know what needs to be on deck for the next gnome design…. a Scott Van Slyke garden gnome (with beard of course).
