Spikes Unveil James Franklin Bobblehead For Aug. 28 Game

It took Bill O’Brien an entire year of coaching here for the Spikes to give him his own bobblehead, so James Franklin is doing something right. During their annual Penn State night on Aug. 28, the Spikes will dole out bobbleheads of the dominator of states to the game’s first 1,000 attendees.

The bobblehead has Franklin standing in front of Beaver Stadium’s gates with “Dominate The State” written on them, a nice touch. He’s also rocking the suit he wore here for his first press conference and holding a football with a Spikes logo. That’s not the only incentive for you to head over to Medlar Field for the contest with the Williamsport Crosscutters — it’s the annual THON night, during which Four Diamonds children have traditionally thrown out the first pitch and families get the VIP treatment. And if something wholesome isn’t good enough to get you to attend, it’s also $1 beer night because it’s Thursday. Something for everyone!

For calendar marking purposes, Aug. 28 is during fall semester’s syllabus week and two days prior to the football season opener against UCF. The St. Louis Cardinals’ Single-A affiliate has had a classic minor league baseball promotion schedule this summer, as Carlton from “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” showed up a few weeks back and Duck Dynasty’s Mountain Man is coming at month’s end.

So which bobblehead is better, O’Brien’s or Franklin’s?
