The Syracuse Chiefs are excited to reveal the 2017 Generation Bobblehead Series. The bobbleheads will be shown for the first time tonight, April 11th, at the Celebrity Bartending Event at the Crowne Plaza's Library Lounge. Following a successful bobblehead promotion the past three seasons, including last summer's Bryce Harper Firefighter bobblehead, the Chiefs are introducing five new bobbleheads for 2017.
The Generation Bobblehead series will include: Trea Turner on April 22nd sponsored by B104.7, Deion Sanders on May 13th sponsored by Lowery Brothers Dealerships, Stephen Strasburg on June 24th sponsored by NBT Bank, Bobby Cox on July 29th sponsored by Crowne Plaza, and Thurman Munson on August 19th sponsored by Gannon Pest Control. Each of the bobbleheads selected represents a particular era in Syracuse Chiefs history defined by team success, uniforms style and important moments.
Professional baseball in Syracuse has a long-running history dating back to the Syracuse Stars of the 1880s. The Chiefs have been a part of that lineage for nearly a century. Countless stars, past and present, have cut their teeth and honed their skills in Syracuse on their way to Major League careers.
"Our fans have had the opportunity to see these stars play and say 'I once saw him play in Syracuse,'" said Syracuse Chiefs general manager Jason Smorol. "With the Generation Bobblehead Series, we hope to rekindle our fans' memories of their favorite players and performances, as well as show the continued level of excellence and talent in Syracuse today."
Each bobblehead featured in the Generation Bobblehead Series will be given out to the first 1000 fans into NBT Bank Stadium on their respective days and will also be guaranteed to all fans that purchase a Super Pack for that day.
