“We had people waiting in line at 2 o’clock,” Prehn told me. “They were there in full force and the giveaway lasted a grand total of 13 minutes.”
The announced attendance for Saturday’s game was 7,791, but only the first 1,000 fans received BobbleBeards.
“The majority of fans understood that it was a popular promotion,” Prehn said. “I probably only had three or four unhappy people come to me.”
If you missed out on the Werth BobbleBeard, there are a few available on eBay, including one listed for $145 or best offer. And you might want to start lining up now for the Jayson Werth Wolf-a-Rine figure, which will be given out on August 16.
