The giveaway error bug has hit the Tigers, weeks after striking the Rockies when they gave away misspelled Troy “Tulowizki” shirts to fans. The Tigers gave away a Miguel Cabrera bobblehead figurine in which he’s holding his two MVP awards from 2012 and 2013. Only one problem: the awards are labeled National League, rather than American League.
The Freep Sports Twitter account retweeted a few user-submitted photos of the bobbleheads. Here’s one with a clear shot:
Update: Forever Collectibles, the company that manufactured the bobbleheads, apologized for the error. Thanks to Matthew Mowery of the Oakland Press for passing this along:
“Forever Collectibles takes full responsibility for this error and we apologize to the fans. We are certainly disappointed this happened.”
Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. No makeup date has been announced yet. As Brink points out, the two clubs meet again in Pittsburgh September 21-23 and both have an off day on the 20th, so that could be a potential makeup date.
Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.
The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in third place.
