Royals will give away Captain America bobblehead in July

Earlier this week, the Royals introduced a website that shows all of their bobbleheads since 2002.

It’s a fun collection of photos, and man, who isn’t kicking themselves for not having the Tony Peña Jr., bobblehead? All kidding aside, there is a zombie bobblehead and a Mr. Royal bobblehead, so it’s not just players who get this honor.

A superhero will be a bobblehead as well. On July 23, the Royals will give away a Captain America bobblehead.

It’s part of Marvel Super Hero Day at Kauffman Stadium, and fans will need a Theme Ticket to receive the bobblehead. You’ll note that Cap’s shield is missing any trace of red in that bobblehead and the blue is a Royals shade, so there’s the tie-in to the team.
