Mookie Betts Dodgers bobblehead already available

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ protracted pursuit of Mookie Betts was a long and arduous process with more twists and turns than the team’s fans obviously would have rather avoided.

With the dust still settling after the acquisition was made official earlier this week, Dodgers fans can now not only relax, but they can also hop on the Betts hype train thanks to a piece of memorabilia rushed to the marketplace in surprisingly quick fashion.

In only a matter of days, a Mookie Betts Bobblehead has already been made available for purchase.

The Betts bobblehead, priced at $45, is an officially licensed product, and is described as follows on FOCO’s site.

Same face. Brand new place. You’ve got a brand new superstar heading to your city, ready to deliver some highlight plays all season long. Life is pretty good. Make it even better by celebrating with this Mookie Betts Los Angeles Dodgers Billboard Bobblehead. Welcome to elite fandom.

It of course remains to be seen whether 2018 AL MVP and World Series champion will be the piece that finally gets the Dodgers over the hump and help the organization win its first championship since 1988. The team came agonizingly close in 2017 and 2018, and with Betts in the fold, the odds of the team returning to the Fall Classic will increase substantially.

The only issue left in light of the Betts bobblehead is how David Price, the other integral piece in the trade with the Red Sox, is presumably left wondering why he doesn’t have a Dodgers bobblehead yet.
