Vin Scully bobblehead used as lure for Dodgers fans to purchase extra tickets

The Los Angeles Dodgers want to cash in on the popularity of Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully.

Scully, who has been a part of the franchise since 1950 when it still was in Brooklyn, will be honored with a bobblehead night Aug. 30 at Dodger Stadium. Scully bobbleheads will be given to the first 50,000 fans who attend the Dodgers-Arizona Diamondbacks game that night.

The Dodgers want to capitalize on the event by making fans buy tickets to other games in addition to the bobblehead night. Fans will need to purchase either a season ticket or a 10-game plan.

The club also is not making individual seats available to its Aug. 7 home game against the Colorado Rockies.

Scully will be the 10th and final bobblehead given out this season by the Dodgers, on August 30 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. But fans can’t buy single game tickets to this game in hopes of securing a cherished Scully bobblehead.

Rather, fans must buy a ticket package of at least 10 games to get tickets for the August 30 game.
