The second bobblehead of the 2013 season will come on Sunday, April 21 as the Crew takes on the Chicago Cubs. The bobblehead will feature Brewers alum & All-Star, George Scott.
The former first baseman played for the Brewers from 1972-1976 and won the Gold Glove Award all five years in a row during his time in Milwaukee. George also won the award in 1967, 1968 and 1971 during his time with the Boston Red Sox.
Hence, his bobblehead will feature George in a Brewers uniform with his five Gold Gloves.
Over his 14-season career, George, who was known as “Boomer,” played in the American League for the Boston Red Sox, Milwaukee Brewers, Kansas City Royals and New York Yankees. He posted a .268 batting average with 271 home runs (which he called “taters,” coining the term), and 1051 RBI in 2034 games.
Speaking of Gold Gloves, two Brewers players were yesterday named finalists for the 2012 Rawlings Gold Glove Award. Left fielder Ryan Braun and third baseman Aramis Ramirez were one of three finalists for the Gold Glove at their respective positions. The awards will be announced tonight on a special edition of ESPN Baseball Tonight at 8 p.m. CT on ESPN2. Tune in tonight to see if Braun and Ramirez will join Scott to make Brewers Gold Glove history.
Individual tickets will go on sale in February, but if you’d like to secure your tickets for this game early, the George Scott bobble is included in the following ticket packages:
