The Pittsburgh Pirates have unveiled an enticing lineup of bobblehead giveaways for the 2024 season at PNC Park, offering fans a chance to collect unique and memorable souvenirs while enjoying a nice day at PNC Park. Oh, and hopefully a good game.

One of the standout bobblehead promotions is scheduled for May 4th, which coincides with Star Wars Night, #Maythefourthbewithyou. The Pirates will be distributing Star Wars-themed Mitch Keller bobbleheads to the first 20,000 fans in attendance. This exclusive collectible merges the beloved Star Wars franchise with the excitement of Pirates baseball, making it a must-have for fans of both worlds. This has been a theme over the last few years in hopes of growing the game.

Another highly anticipated bobblehead giveaway is set for May 25th, honoring the legendary Pirates player, Dave Parker, also known as "The Cobra." The first 20,000 fans entering the ballpark will receive a bobblehead featuring Parker in his iconic pose, paying homage to his remarkable contributions to the team's history. Dave Parker is one of the players that should be in the Hall of Fame but never received enough votes to make it into the exclusive club.

Furthermore, on June 22nd, the Pirates will celebrate City Connect Weekend with an Andrew McCutchen bobblehead giveaway.

The bobblehead will showcase McCutchen wearing the Pirates' City Connect uniform, providing fans with a memorable keepsake from this special event. McCutchen is the face of the current Pirates so it definitely will be a popular one.

These bobblehead giveaways are not only a great way for fans to commemorate their favorite players and special events but also serve as reminders of some of the players and games from the past. For instance, I have the luxury of checking out a Chris Archer bobblehead on nearly a daily basis. With each bobblehead representing a piece of the 2024 pirates. Promotions are always great they add an extra layer of excitement and anticipation to game days at PNC Park for fans and families alike.
