Dodgers honor Angels’ Scioscia with bobblehead
LOS ANGELES (AP) —Mike Scioscia can be forgiven for getting a big head over this: The Los Angeles Dodgers are honoring the manager of the rival Angels with his own bobblehead night.
The Dodgers said Thursday that fans will get the Scioscia bobbleheads when he brings the Angels to Chavez Ravine for an interleague game on June 12.
Scioscia, a two-time All-Star catcher, spent his entire playing career with the Dodgers from 1980-92 and helped them win World Series titles in 1981 and 1988.
Other bobblehead promotions this year include Maury Wills with Don Drysdale (April 28), Orel Hershiser (May 15), the infield quartet of Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Bill Russell and Ron Cey (May 29), Hall of Fame managers Tommy Lasorda and Walter Alston (July 14) and Fernando Valenzuela (Aug. 21).
