D-backs to give away luchador bobbleheads
The Arizona Diamondbacks will be giving away 20,000 Ketel Marte Luchador bobbleheads on Sept. 8.
The Diamondbacks will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Day then, and will have a host of events alongside the bobblehead giveaway that will be announced soon.
The Ketel Marte bobblehead features the D-backs infielder in a traditional luchador costume showcasing a wrestling mask, cape and boots. The detailed mask includes snake-themed fangs and the team’s primary “A” logo and the current team color scheme of Sedona Red and Teal is featured all over the bobblehead. Marte is also wearing a Los D-backs jersey, which the team will wear on Sept. 8.
Marte, a native of Nizao, Dominican Republic (D.R.), goes by the nickname “Pike,” which comes from the D.R. reference to someone who has swagger. His 8 triples in the first half of the season are a franchise record and are currently tied for first in the National League.
