Dodgers to give away Hello Kitty bobblehead on July 1

This may not quite placate fans missing Hiroki Kuroda. At least not those male and over 12.

The Dodgers announced Thursday that the first 50,000 fans through the gates on July 1 would receive a Hello Kitty Mini Bobblehead. But that’s not all. Not even close:

In addition, Hello Kitty and her friend Keroppi® will make a special appearance at the Viva Los Dodgers Day festival held in lot 6 two hours prior to game time and Hello Kitty will also throw the ceremonial first pitch.

Even this is still only a fraction of the excitement planned for this year. Remember, Dodger Stadium’s 50th Anniversary presented by State Farm will be celebrated all season.

      “Hello Kitty Bobblehead Night,” otherwise known as “Frank McCourt’s Last Big ‘Fuck You, Los Angeles’ Night.”

    This has nothing on a Zim Bear.

    I remember when Bat Day and Ball Day were the big promos in LA. Of course, the Dodgers also had real ownership and great teams. Oh well, at least they still have Vin Scully.

    And the best pitcher & position player in baseball.

    Wow. What is this all about?

    I guess it’s a ploy to get young girls invested in the team now that most actual baseball fans have given up on the Dodgers?

    Hey I’m 3,000 miles away from Los Angeles so I won’t be there.

    But my four year old daughter would have the time of her life if I took her to a ballgame and Hello Kitty threw out the first pitch, made an appearance in the parking lot, and we got a couple of bobbleheads to take home. I’d even suffer through a Dodgers game for her.

    If you bring your little girl to the game, here is how it will go:

    1. Go early to see the Hello Kitty.
    2. Get the bobblehead.
    3. Get her some popcorn.
    4. Tell the guy behind you to watch his mouth in front of your daughter.
    5. Get her some cotton candy
    6. She’s bored. Leave the game with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the third inning. Two minutes before the grand slam.
    7. Wonder what you were thinking of.

      Sounds like the voice of experience.
