LAKELAND, Fla. — The Lakeland Flying Tigers are giving out bobbleheads of Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd ahead of their Friday night game at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium.
The first 1,200 fans ages 13 and older will receive a voucher upon entry into the stadium. Fans with vouchers can then claim one bobblehead each, starting in the fifth inning.
“Yep, you heard that right, you can take me home,” Judd said in a video posted to the sheriff’s office Facebook page. “Your very own Grady Judd to watch over your house while you’re not there.”
Gates open at 5:30 p.m. ET Friday. Bobbleheads are served on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The promotion is part of the team’s law enforcement appreciation weekend. At 3:45 p.m. ET Saturday, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office will play the Lakeland Police Department in the annual "Battle of the Badges" charity softball game.
The Flying Tigers are the High-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers hold spring training at the ballpark.
