After transportation delays threatened to knock the All-Fan Jim Henderson Bobblehead giveaway from today’s game, the truck carrying the items recovered in time and the giveaway will proceed as planned.
The final truck arrived at Miller Park at approximately 1 a.m. and with Miller Park staff working overtime, the distribution will occur as scheduled.
All fans attending the game will receive the Bobblehead, one of nine All-Fan Bobbleheads planned for this season at Miller Park.
Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jim Henderson is on the disabled list, and so is the truck delivering his Bobblehead.
Tomorrow is the “All-Fan Jim Henderson Bobblehead Day,” but due to mechanical issues, the truck may not arrive in time for the items to be distributed. If the items are delayed further, fans will need to hold on to their ticket stub to pick up their Bobblehead on a later date. Specifics on the delayed distribution will be announced tomorrow, if necessary.
“We are hopeful that the Bobbleheads will arrive in time, but we wanted to communicate in advance the issues with the transportation so that fans are prepared when they arrive at the game tomorrow,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We appreciate everyone’s patience and apologize on behalf of the transportation personnel who are bringing the Bobbleheads to Milwaukee.”
