Bobbleheads, NBA announcers & Al Kaline’s last at-bat By Al Kaline’s
The bobble head doll remains king of the ballpark promotion. We touch base with Phil Sklar of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum who previews the hot bobble head figures given away at ballpark turnstiles. Also- the landscape has changed for NBA radio play-by-play announcers. Former Miami Heat broadcaster David Halberstam says today’s announcers have been moved from court side to the upper rafters of some arenas. Halberstam traces it to the almighty dollar. And- former Detroit Tigers bat boy Dennis Clotworthy has the compelling story of sharing Tiger great Al Kaline’s final moments at Tiger Stadium.
