And last, but certainly not least….. our tenth and final bobblehead of the 2013 season will be a Ben Oglivie bobblehead on Sunday, September 15 as the Crew takes on the Cincinnati Reds at Miller Park.
Ben Oglivie was a Brewers outfielder from 1978-1986. Like Gorman Thomas (who was also announced as a 2013 bobblehead yesterday), Ben was a member of the 1982 AL Championship team under Manager Harvey Kuenn (another 2013 bobblemate!) and one of Harvey’s Wallbangers.
This is the first full-size Brewers bobblehead of the three-time Brewers All-Star (1980, 1981 & 1982) that we’ve given out at Miller Park.
