Hogan, Orioles minor-league affiliate team up on bobbleheads to raise cancer awareness

Associated Press

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and the minor-league Bowie Baysox baseball team are raising cancer awareness with the help of two bobbleheads: one depicting the chief executive bald and the other with hair.

The Baysox announced the promotion Wednesday.

The first 1,000 fans 18 or older will choose between the bobbleheads, and the one that runs out first will be declared winner of the "Bobblection."

Baysox players will wear lime green jerseys to spread awareness for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The jerseys will be auctioned to raise money for charity.

Hogan was diagnosed with Stage 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in June 2015. He underwent aggressive treatment over five months and lost his hair before announcing he was in complete remission in November. His hair is growing back.

The game is July 24.
