D.C.'s 2010 baseball bobbleheads

I don't really write about Baltimore baseball teams, but Charm City is technically part of this geographic area, and so Wednesday marks an important date for all of us. It's the beginning of the 2010 baseball bobblehead season. Go crazy.

I mentioned a few key bobblehead dates a year ago, and then received a request to provide a comprehensive list this season. I never did that, but luckily, reader Ben G. did the work for us. He e-mailed this fairly comprehensive list, which kicks off Wednesday evening in Baltimore. The Bethesda Big Train and other Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League franchises have apparently not yet released their promotional schedules. Thanks to Ben for doing all the heavy lifting.

Wed. 5/26: Baltimore Orioles, Nolan Reimold Mini Bobblehead, first 15,000 fans

Sun. 6/13: Harrisburg Senators, Cliff Lee Bobblehead, first 1,000 fans

Thurs. 6/17: Bowie Baysox, Brad Bergesen Bobblehead, first 1,000 fans

Sat. 6/19: Washington Nationals, Ryan Zimmerman Bobblehead, first 15,000 fans

Fri. 6/24: Baltimore Orioles, Adam Jones Mini Bobblehead, first 15,000 fans

Wed. 6/30: Baltimore Orioles, Matt Wieters Bobblehead, first 25,000 fans

Tues. 7/27: Frederick Keys, "Volt Day" featuring a Bobblehead of Top Chef's Bryan Voltaggio, first 1,000 fans

Sat. 7/31: Washington Nationals, Nyjer Morgan Bobblehead, first 15,000 fans

Thurs. 8/5: Baltimore Orioles, Nick Markakis Mini Bobblehead, first 15,000 fans

Sun. 8/8: Harrisburg Senators, Stephen Strasburg Bobblehead, first 1,000 fans

A friend of mine tossed me a Nyjer Morgan bobblehead. It was a little high, I mis-timed my jump and missed it.

Hard to see from that picture but is Zimmm holding a bat and wearing his (fielders) glove?

Ah, the bat is silver and the glove is gold, still looks funny to see him holding both at once.

The Nyjer Morgan ones are going to more popular because well... he's Nyjer Morgan.

How can you not comment on the fact the subject of the Orioles's first bobblehead night (Nolan Reimold) will celebrate his night with Triple A Rochester?
