In addition to their excellent play on the field which has resulted in six consecutive National League West division titles and back-to-back NL pennants, the Los Angeles Dodgers have prioritized creating a memorable fan experience at Dodger Stadium.
The club annually schedules dozens of giveaways at the ballpark, from bobbleheads to jerseys and special-themed merchandise that fans eagerly wait to add to their collection.
The Dodgers have already doled out Walker Buehler bobbleheads to ticketed fans this season and still have a whopping 11 more set for release at later dates.
While the process of formulating these kind of giveaways is usually smooth, the Dodgers recently hit an unfortunate roadblock.
According to TMZ, the club has filed a lawsuit against Plan P2 Promotions for allegedly failing to produce thousands of Tommy Lasorda bobbleheads for an unannounced game this season:
The Los Angeles Dodgers are suing a promotions company after they claim they were stiffed out of 42,000 Lasorda bobbleheads … this according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports.
The problem?? The Dodgers claim the company never delivered the Tommy goods … and now, the MLB organization is suing for $175,000 for breaking the terms of the contract.
While the Dodgers have yet to formally announce a Tommy Lasorda bobblehead night, it remains unclear if the club will still go through these plans or scrap them altogether as a result of the debacle.
Should the Lasorda bobbleheads fail to come to fruition, one would imagine the Dodgers will likely schedule a new night for an undisclosed player later in the season.
