Minnesota Twins vs. Houston Astros

Break out your sleeping bags and tents, it's time for another Twins bobblehead giveaway game. The player being immortalized in desktop collectable form as the team plays the Astros this weekend is longtime first baseman Kent Hrbek. It's actually the second time No. 14 has been bobble-ized. A few years back he was depicted in a classic '80s baby-blue Twins uniform. This time Herbie, who was with the Twins for both of their World Series championships, is sculpted following through after a swing, and is wearing the modern white home uniform. The bobbleheads will go to the first 10,000 fans through the turnstiles for the 7:10 p.m. game, many of whom will spend all of Thursday night snoozing outside the Metrodome gates. If you can't make it to the game, don't worry. You can always buy one for hundreds of dollars on eBay later. If you're more interested in your own head, the Twins also have you covered this weekend. The first 10,000 fans at Saturday night's game, also an interleague showdown against Houston, will receive a Twins cowboy hat courtesy of—what else?—WeFest. Giddy-up.
Fri., June 19, 7:10 p.m.; Sat., June 20, 6:10 p.m.; Sun., June 21, 1:10 p.m., 2009
