A Vin Scully bobblehead …. what’s it going to look like?

After of years of sidesteping requests to have his likeness cemented in bobblehead fame, Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully has agreed to be one of 10 bobblehead giveaway promotions that Dodgers will stage for the 2012 season, the team announced today.

The Scully bobblehead will come out on Thursday, Aug. 30, when the Dodgers face Arizona. Expect it to be listed as a sellout minutes after the single-game tickets go on sale. And if we’re allowed to suggest: Make it in a way that it has one of Vin’s call (the Gibson home run?) at the press of a button.

The Dodgers are using the series to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dodger Stadium.

“Since I won’t be here for the 100th anniversary, I agreed to do the 50th,” Scully said. “Otherwise, I would be open to questions as to why I didn’t do it. It’s far easier this way.”

The rest of the Dodgers’ bobblehead list:

==Don Drysdale and Maury Wills: Saturday, April 28 vs. Washington
==Orel Hershiser: Tuesday, May 15 vs. Arizona
==The record-setting infield of Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Bill Russell and Ron Cey: Tuesday, May 29 vs. Milwaukee
== Mike Scioscia: Tuesday, June 12 vs. the Angels
==Eric Karros: Thursday, June 28 vs. the N.Y. Mets
==Tommy Lasorda and Walter Alston: Saturday, July 14 vs. San Diego
==Kirk Gibson: Tuesday, July 31 vs. Arizona
==Sandy Koufax: Tuesday, Aug. 7 vs. Colorado
==Fernando Valenzuela: Tuesday, Aug. 21 vs. San Francisco

Why so many promo nights against the D’backs, the defending NL West champs? One reason, is because they assume Gibson, the team’s manager, will be there in July to accept it.
