State College Spikes to Hold James Franklin Bobblehead Giveaway

As baseball fans know, minor league promotions are the best.

State College’s minor league team — the Spikes, a short season single-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals and the defending New York–Penn League Pickney Division champions — announced its promotions schedule today, headlined by a James Franklin bobblehead night on August 28.

The first 1,000 fans who arrive at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park for the Spikes’ game against their rivals, the Williamsport Crosscutters, will receive a bobblehead. The promotion is presented by The Nittany Lion Inn and The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel.

The game will take place two days before the Nittany Lions start their season in Ireland against UCF. This is the second consecutive year that the Spikes have offered a Penn State football coach bobblehead, as the team gave out Bill O’Brien bobbleheads in 2013.

If you’re interested in the Spikes full promotions schedule, check it out right here. Between those and their 90s night which will feature Alfonso Ribiero — aka Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air — 2014 should be a great year of Spikes baseball.
