Just a reminder for those that are going to Dodger Stadium tonight....

In addition, fans at the game will receive a Duke Snider bobblehead, presented by State Farm, and will be able to pose for photos with Snider’s Hall of Fame plaque, which is making a rare trip to Dodger Stadium from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York for the event.

Snider’s wife Bev, four children, Kevin, Kurt, Pam and Dawna, several grandchildren and other family members will all be at the game and will participate in the pre-game ceremonies.

Long Live the Duke of Flatbush.

Any way I can convince you to let me "win" the Kershaw bobblehead by sending you a picture of my wife and I with the Duke Snider plaque? Or by doing something at tomorrow's afternoon game?

The pre-game ceremony in honor of Duke was fantastic - especially the video montage. Too bad there weren't more tributes to him during the inning breaks (like the one with Don Newcombe).
