2014 MLB Bobblehead Giveaway Schedule and Guide

2014 Chicago Cubs Babe Ruth Bobblehead SGA ImageBobbleheads have long been one of the most popular baseball stadium giveaways. If you've ever been to a game where one is being given away, you've likely encountered the lineups. The last one I went to, people waited in line for a couple of hours, grabbed their bobbleheads and went home before the game. That's extreme, but it proves the drawing power the figures have. 2014 is a big year for baseball bobblehead giveaways.

More than bobblehead giveaways are planned for 2014. That's up more than 20 percent from last year.

The Angels start it all with a Mike Trout bobblehead on April 1. Each month, the giveaways are spread out across MLB evenly. Each month sees approximately 20 promotions.

The Dodgers continue to be the kings of MLB bobblehead stadium giveaways. They have 11 planned for 2014 including Yasiel Puig. The team also has a dual figure (Pee Wee Reese and Roy Campanella) and one with four players (Dusty Baker, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey and Reggie Smith).

With the Cubs celebrating Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary, the team has lots of promotions planned. Going beyond just the team, their bobbleheads include Red Grange, Gale Sayers. Perhaps the most curious one is of Babe Ruth. Yes, Babe Ruth, the Yankee. The promotion honors the "Called Shot," which was made at Wrigley.

The Rockies are combining their bobblehead and garden gnome promotions to release bobble gnomes. They have several throughout the season, most of which focus on a nickname theme.

Fresh of his Grammy wins, Macklemore is being honored by the Seattle Mariners on June 12. Some of the other intriguing 2014 MLB bobblehead giveaways include Evan Longoria's 1980s Hair Band (Tampa Bay), a Homer Bailey dual bobble celebrating both of his no-hitters (Reds), a Nolan and Reid Ryan dual bobble (Houston) and President Racing Bill (Wasington). And let's not forget Hello Kitty. Both the Yankees and Dodgers have figures for the animated feline.

  2. Actually the Brewer list is here. http://milwaukee.brewers.mlb.com/mil/ticketing/allfans.jsp

  3. Tony » Thanks! Just added them.

  4. I wonder if the Cubs had to get permission from the Yankees to make the Babe Ruth bobblehead.

  5. Thanks for the list.

  14. BJ » Thanks! The front office is doing some switches because I remember very clearly plugging the originals in. : )

  15. If there is no number listed after the give away, does that mean it’s for all fans?

  16. Raymond Ray » Correct, as far as we understand. I’d still recommend double-checking with the team just in case. However most teams are specific ahead of time.

  17. The Red Sox have Pedro Martinez bobblehead night September 9th
