D-backs to give out dual Ketel Marte switch-hitting bobbleheads
The Arizona Diamondbacks are going to be giving out two bobbleheads on the same day. You’ll just have to wait and see which one you end up with.
The D-backs announced on Tuesday that 10,000 fans will get a Ketel Marte right-handed-hitting bobblehead on April 11, and another 10,000 fans will get a left-handed-hitting Marte bobblehead that same day.
“Which one are you hoping for?” the team’s tweet read.
The announcement was made on National Bobblehead Day.
The giveaway will be the first D-backs bobblehead of the season.
The left-handed-hitting bobblehead is donning a black Los D-backs jersey with teal accents. The right-handed-hitting Marte has a red alternate jersey with sand accents.
The logo on the helmets are different, too.
Marte, of course, is a switch hitter. The 26-year-old was an All-Star in 2019 and finished fourth in the National League MVP race.
He hit .329 with 32 home runs and 92 RBIs. Marte had a .981 OPS, 36 doubles and nine triples. Batting righty against left-handed pitchers, Marte hit .333 with 12 home runs. Batting lefty against right-handers, Marte hit .329 with 20 home runs.
