MC Hammer Bobblehead Night Coming To Oakland

As we close in on the start of Spring Training (34 days and counting!) we start to see teams around the league unveiling their promotional schedules for the year.

While few Major League teams can match the greatness of "Nobody Night" or Pre-Planned Funeral Night, the Oakland A's have come up with an idea that might be legit.

Too legit to quit, in fact.

MC Hammer Bobblehead Night.

Sunday, July 17th against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, the A's are celebrating the 1980s by giving away springy-necked miniatures of the former A's ballboy-turned-rapper-turned-pop culture punchline.

Not to be picky or anything, but good ol' Stanley Burrell was a batboy from 1973 until 1980. And while he did have his first two major album releases in the late '80s, the bulk of his fame came in the early '90s with Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em and Too Legit To Quit. Not exactly an '80s staple.

And since the game is still six months away, there's still time for British Knights to jump in as a sponsor.
