LOOK: Tigers Triple-A team to honor former great Jim Leyland with bobblehead

According to Emily Waldon of The Athletic, the Toledo Mud Hens are set to honor longtime Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland with a bobblehead night on May 25.

According to MILB.com, Toledo will give out a Leyland bobblehead to the first 2,000 fans who enter Fifth Third Field for its game against the Norfolk Tide.

Leyland, who served as Detroit’s manager from 2006-2013, managed the Tigers to a 2006 American League pennant and finished with a 700-595 record as Detroit’s skipper.

Tickets are still available for the game, though fans in the area will certainly be looking to get their hands on this special bobblehead. What better way to kick off your Memorial Day weekend than with this collector’s item.
