Fans will be lining up early Thursday at Safeco Field to get the highly anticipated Macklemore bobblead. It’s just the latest in what’s become the Mariners most popular giveaway.
The tradition started in 2001 with an Ichiro bobblehead given to the first 25,000 fans. Since then, a number of players and others have been given the honor of their own bobblehead.
Ichiro has appeared on eight different bobbleheads, followed by Felix Hernandez with seven different editions. Ken Griffey Jr. is featured on five separate models.
Along with Cano and Macklemore, this year’s giveaways also include a Hisashi Iwakuma bobblehead on July 12, a Lou Piniella Hall of Fame bobblehead on August 9, and another Felix Hernandez edition on August 30.
