SBJ: MLB Clubs Distributed 2.27 Million Bobbleheads in 2012

We love this stat. According to the Sports Business Journal, MLB Clubs distributed 2.27 million bobbleheads this past season.

David Broughton:

But in 2012, 26 clubs distributed a total of 2.27 million bobbleheads across 94 giveaway dates. That’s the most bobblehead dates since 2008 and a 25 percent increase in the number of bobbles distributed in 2011. Even the New York Yankees jumped on the bobble bandwagon for the first time in at least seven seasons, handing out 18,000 MetLife-sponsored Snoopy bobbleheads for a Wednesday night game against Toronto in mid-September.
