I am coming up for the game on Sat.

I come to at least 1 game per year and have been there on numerous bobblehead nights so I know about what the drill is if I definitely want to get one.

My only question is do you think the attendance will be over 30k, and does children under the age of 3 receive one?

anyone with a ticket gets one. if the weather is good there will be over 30k, if you are in by 7pm i think you will have no problem getting one.

It's a 7:10 game. I'd get there well before 7 if you want one.

I'm going to have an extra if anyone wants to trade for another giveaway item. PM me.

I remember for Adam Dunn bobblehead day in 2002, I was outside the stadium with other folks at 1pm for a 7:00 PM game. Waited there all day.... and I could have ended up with more then 1 Dunn bobble. That was back when the first 10,000 fans got one

Can you get the 5.00 dollar tickets at the windows close to the seating or are that only at main gate ticket window?

They were LONG gone by 7:00 last night. The game was a sell-out, which means over 10k people got no bobblehead. I had to hear the whining from the fans behind me all night :)

Well, maybe they should've arrived earlier

I don't really understand why they don't just make 10k more. I always get there early, and get one anyway, but it's usually a sell out, so it makes no sense to me to not just make 45k or something, and sell the leftovers in the pro shop.

It does kinda suck for out of town fans who do not make many trips ti Cincy, I always get lost around Cincy a few times upon arriving because I am usually looking for cheap parking somewhere. But I still got the bobblehead, no harm there.

i agree, the indians do this and sell them for at least $10.


I got a bobblehead at 6:50 at the main gate and they still had quite a few left. wonder when they actually sold out?

Here's a pic of the one I have coming. I've seen better looking BHs that's for sure, but it'll still be nice to add to my collection.

What kind of action shot do you think we'd get of Old McDonald?

If it's accurate it will be on a bench. :p:

That Votto bobblehead is really nice. Very accurate swing follow through, uniform, and facial features. One of the better bobbleheads the Reds have done in a long time.

A friend of mine who is a Cardinal fan was at the game. He brought me back 2 Votto bobble heads. I haven't been to a game this year or last because I live 6 hours away. I now have a 2 month old so I don't know if I'll get over this year. It was nice to get the bobble heads though. My friend did say that if Bruce had got another hit on Sunday he was going to throw the bobble heads in the Ohio river.
