A lot of fans came out to watch the State College Spikes take on the Mahoning Valley Scrappers on Sunday night. Good baseball wasn’t the only reason people came out though. It was Jerome Bettis bobblehead night!!! The first 1,000 fans through the gates received a commemorative Jerome Bettis Hall of Fame Gold Jacket bobblehead. I think the coolest part of this specific bobblehead is that the platform he’s standing on is in the shape of a bus. Jerome Bettis was once or still is involved with a company that owns different minor league baseball teams including the Spikes. That’s why I think they did this. Plus he was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame over the weekend too and is a PA favorite.
The Spikes went on to win 4-1 over the Scrappers. Instead of having chicken fingers and fries, I went for a cheeseburger this time. I could smell them on the grill while waiting to get in. Everything in the gift shop was 20% off as long as it had black and/or gold on it. So I picked myself up a new “Fear The Dear” t-shirt.
