Photo: Oakland Athletics affiliate gives away worst bobblehead ever
Sunday was Barry Zito bobblehead day for fans of the Sacramento River Cats.
The first 2,500 fans through the gates at Raley Field received a complimentary replica of the San Francisco Giants southpaw, who spent part of 2000 pitching for the Triple-A squad as a member of the Oakland Athletics organization. Those fans who were lucky enough to get their hands on one of the miniature Zitos are probably disgruntled with the finished product.
First, the bobblehead depicts Zito wearing a glove on his left hand, which means a mistake was made in making the MLB veteran right-handed here.
Second, the bobblehead features Zito sporting an incredibly splotchy beard, which was enough to make even the guys from Duck Dynasty horrified.
Epic fail, guys. Epic fail.
