Huh. It looks like the Oakland A's do in fact have one thing going for them that the Giants don't: M.C. Hammer bobbleeheads. The A's will be the first MLB team ever to award bobblehead transmogrification to a rapper. "Hammer worked as a clubhouse assistant for his hometown squad Oakland Athletics between 1973 and 1980 and the MLB squad will be the first baseball team to award a bobblehead doll to a rapper," notes MTV.
The A'a will host M.C. Hammer Bobblehead Night as part of a "80s Weekend" promotional event. Which is odd since, as Best Week Ever points out, the majority of Hammer's success happened during the '90s.
Anyway, M.C. Hammer Bobblehead Night happens on Sunday, July 17.
