If you thought the Orioles would cancel Kevin Gausman's "Game of Thrones" bobblehead night after he was traded to the Atlanta Braves, you know nothing.
The Orioles still plan to hand out the Gausman keepsakes on “Game of Thrones” night (Aug. 14) to all fans who purchased the evening’s ticket package, a team spokeswoman said. Tickets are still on sale at orioles.com/gameofthrones.
The bobblehead depicts the right-hander riding a dragon.
Gausman was dealt to the Braves on July 31 at the trade deadline.
This won’t be the first time a team has had to honor their promised promotion after a player has been traded; it’s not even the first time “Game of Thrones” night has been involved.
The Detroit Tigers were all set to feature J.D. Martinez in their own Westeros-themed bobblehead, but instead shipped him off to the Arizona Diamondbacks about two weeks before their scheduled “Game of Thrones” night.
