Chase Utley bobblehead giveaway at least gets his soul patch right

Jan 29, 2014, 4:19 PM EDT

The Reading Fightins will be giving away a Chase Utley bobblehead on their opening night on April 3rd to the first 3,000 adults. If adults love anything, it’s Chase Utley.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow.

Now, getting a bobblehead to look like the actual person it’s made to represent is often challenging. The Utley one doesn’t exactly look like the Phillies second baseman, but at least it does get the soul patch right.

It looks like someone else famous, but I can’t put my finger on it. Who do you think?


Here’s the full press release from the Fightins:

There are only 64 days until Opening Night on Thursday, April 3 at 7:05 p.m. and there are plenty of reasons to get excited about it, highlighted by a Chase Utley Fightins Bobblehead giveaway to the first 3,000 adults 15 and over thanks to CJ’s Tire and Automotive Services and a VIP On-Field Warning Track Cocktail Party. 25 fans in attendance on Opening Night will also win a game-worn jersey thanks to VF Outlets while one lucky fan will win a trip to Spring Training 2015 thanks to White Star Tours.

Tickets for the Opening Night game go on-sale at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 30th via, by calling the Fightin Phils Ticket Office at 610-370-BALL, or by stopping by the box office in person. VIP On-Field Warning Track Cocktail Party tickets, Red Reserved Seats and General Admission tickets will be available for purchase while Blue Box Seats and Yellow Box Seats are available by purchasing a Fightin Phils Season Tickets or Mini-Plans.

“It’s hard to top last season’s Opening Night, but the 2014 season hits the ground running,” said Fightin Phils General Manager Scott Hunsicker. “Our Chase Utley Fightins bobblehead giveaway is an incredible item that only can be found in Baseballtown. We’re bringing back both our jersey giveaway and VIP Warning Track Party again this year due to resounding demand from our fans.”

He starts at second base for the Philadelphia Phillies, was a member of the 2008 World Series championship team, and on April 3, he’ll become a bobblehead when the club gives a Chase Utley Fightins Bobblehead to the first 3,000 adults thanks to CJ’s Tire and Automotive Services. Utley’s stint in Reading will be forever commemorated with the first bobblehead giveaway to feature a Fightin Phils jersey.

In addition to the bobblehead giveaway, 25 fans will win a navy blue Fightins game-worn jersey thanks to VF Outlets that the team will wear to start the 2014 season.   All fans that will be in attendance for the 48th season opener will be eligible to win the authentic autographed jerseys free of charge.

Opening Night will also see the return of the VIP On-Field Warning Track Cocktail Party that will allow partygoers to watching batting practice from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. and mingle with the 2014 Fightin Phils while enjoying an all-you-can-eat buffet and open bar. VIP Tickets for the evening include both access to the on-field party and Fairgrounds Square Mall ’67 Club Picnic Area and cost $35 per ticket.

One lucky fan will also win trip to Clearwater, Florida for Spring Training in 2015 thanks to White Star Tours.

A full list of promotions will be announced leading up to the first day of individual game ticket sales on February 13th.
