It never hurts to have a crossover promotion at the ballpark to bring in fans. The Tampa Bay Rays are likely to hit a home run with their Evan Longoria Game of Thrones themed bobblehead.

With the popularity of Game of Thrones, it seemed to be a perfect way to bring more fans over to the ballpark.
On July 8th, it is the Tampa Bay Rays turn to host their Game of Thrones night. Prior to their game against the Boston Red Sox, the first 15,000 fans in attendance will get an Evan Longoria Game of Thrones themed bobblehead. It is quite the impressive specimen.

Add in the excellent promotion, and the Rays should have no problem being close to a capacity crowd at the Trop. After all, what Rays fan, or baseball fan in general, wouldn’t want one of these bobbleheads? I know that personally, I’m considering the drive down from Vermont to try to get one of these while taking in a game.
