Davis wins fan vote for bobblehead

The Orioles announced that first baseman Chris Davis has been selected as the AT&T Fans’ Choice Bobblehead. For the second consecutive year, fans were able to select the player they wanted immortalized in a bobblehead giveaway. The bobblehead is scheduled to be distributed during Fan Appreciation Weekend on Sunday, September 29 to the first 20,000 fans age 15 and over.

Voting began on March 25 and fans voted three different ways throughout the promotion: through unlimited mobile voting, online at http://www.orioles.com/bobblehead, and on the Orioles Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/orioles. The voting concluded May 15, with Davis beating out pitchers Wei-Yin Chen, Jason Hammel, Jim Johnson and outfielder Nate McLouth.

Fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance and arrive early to the Orioles’ 1:35 p.m. game vs. the Red Sox on September 29. This year, each time fans voted using their mobile device, they were entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Bobblehead VIP experience that includes four lower box tickets to attend the September 29 game and an autographed bobblehead of the 2013 Fans’ Choice Bobblehead player, plus an on-field experience prior to the game. The randomly selected winner is Brent Stuart from Hurlock, Maryland.
