Minor League baseball team plans “Manti Te’o Girlfriend Bobblehead” giveaway

Posted:

A Kentucky minor league team is attempting to cash in on the Manti Te'o story by offering fans a "Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead Night."

Just one catch, there won't be a real bobblehead.

The Florence Freedom say they'll be handing out empty boxes to the first 1000 fans on Thursday, May 23.

"This will be the best kind of bobblehead a fan could get," Freedom General Manager Josh Anderson said in a release.  "Because now fans can make the bobblehead out to be whatever they want it to be."

The Freedom say they'll block off a section for fans to sit with their imaginary friends, girlfriend, boyfriend or spouse. They'll also have a pretend kiss cam, air guitar contest and an imaginary food fight.

The Florence Freedom play in the Independent Frontier League.
