Mud Hens Offer Chia Bobblehead Promo

Posted Sep 1st, 2009 by Jason Griffin  Category: Sports, Toledo.com

 

The Toledo Mud Hens will be doing a never done before promotion to begin the month of September. Our home stadium, Fifth Third Field, has been recognized as one of the best stadiums in all of professional baseball. We will be honoring the man behind the care of the park’s field in a very special way.

Jake Tyler, the Toledo Mud Hens much-venerated groundskeeper, will be honored in a never-before-seen way at Fifth Third Field on September 3, 2009.

In a special pre-game giveaway, the first 2,500 fans will receive a Jake Tyler “Chia Plant” bobble-head doll. This “chia” bobble has never been done before. Fans can now grow the chia turf with the skill and grace that Mr. Tyler does the playing surface of Fifth Third Field.

Tyler really is a master of his art, earning numerous honors and awards as the caretaker of one of baseball’s most beautiful and well-kept fields. Here is a list of Tyler’s awards since joining the Mud Hens in 2005:

– Governor’s Cup Championship (2005)
– Governor’s Cup Championship (2006)
– International League Sports Turf Manager of the Year (2006)
– Triple-A Sports Turf Manager of the Year (2006)
– International League Sports Turf Manager of the Year (2007)
– Triple-A Sports Turf Manager of the Year (2007)
– International League Sports Turf Manager of the Year (2008)

*Tyler also has two more awards to his credit prior to joining the Mud Hens. While with Binghamton, he was named the Eastern League Sports Turf Manager of the Year (2002, 2004).

This unique giveaway is scheduled for the September 3 division matchup against rival Columbus. The game begins at 6:30 p.m. with gates opening at 5:30 p.m.

Jake is truly deserving of the attention. He takes pride in his work and, we believe, his attention to detail is virtually unmatched. We know the players like playing on the home surface, and repeatedly report that “there is no place like home”.
