"I'm honored and flattered that the Baysox have decided to put me on a bobblehead," Tillman said. "I've never had one made so I'm excited to see how it comes out. The 2008 season in Bowie was my first in the Orioles system and a really good year for me on the mound, so I will always have great memories of my time with the Baysox and I appreciate them honoring me in this fashion."
"More than just an item under the tree, these holiday gift packs will provide unforgettable nights at the ballpark next season," said Baysox Assistant General Manager Phil Wrye. "Tickets to a Baysox game are a great gift for the whole family and something everyone can enjoy together. This is also our fans' opportunity to get the first ever bobblehead collectible of All-Star pitcher Chris Tillman."
Tillman, who pitched for the Baysox in 2008, was named to his first career All-Star game with the Orioles in 2013. The right-handed starting pitcher led the Orioles with a 16-7 record and 3.71 ERA this past season. Tillman went 11-4 with a 3.18 ERA and 154 strikeouts in 28 games for the Baysox in 2008. This will be Tillman's first appearance as a bobblehead with the Baysox and the only opportunity for fans to acquire this new bobblehead collectible will be to purchase a holiday ticket pack.
If you are looking for a stocking stuffer for your kids, the Baysox are also offering a special Kids Holiday Ticket Package. The package includes a voucher for two undated Youth General Admission tickets that can be used at any 2014 home game and a book with 13 tickets for Louie's Kids Park. Louie also has decided to include a nylon black and orange drawstring backpack as a special gift. The package is available for $25 and can be ordered online at www.baysoxshop.com.
