ValleyCats to Honor Jeter With Bobblehead
By Editorial Staff
Good news Yankees fans and bobblehead fans (and Yankees fans who are also bobblehead fans)! The Tri-City ValleyCats, a short-season Astros affiliate, will be kicking off a series of bobbleheads this season with Derek Jeter as the first player to be honored in the series.
The collection will honor the long history of professional baseball in the Albany region. Said ValleyCats VP/GM Rick Murphy:
"There is a long-standing tradition of professional baseball here in the Capital Region and we feel this is a great way to honor a future Hall of Famer whose path to Cooperstown will have run through our local community."
The Jeter bobblehead will depict the Captain during his stint with the Albany-Colonie Yankees in 1994, and will be given away to the first 1,500 fans at the ValleyCats’ August 20th game against the Staten Island Yankees.
