Dewayne Wise! Under the circumstances, this is the best bobblehead you have ever seen By Vinnie Duber
Under the circumstances, this might be the best bobblehead you’ll ever see.
Much like they did last year — with a retro, cowboy-hat-wearing Hawk Harrelson collectible — the White Sox are offering a special bobblehead to fans who purchase a weekend package for SoxFest. This one is honoring the 10th anniversary of “The Catch,” Dewayne Wise’s jaw-dropping snag against the center-field wall that saved Mark Buehrle’s perfect game back in the summer of 2009.
Wise’s catch is almost as legendary as Buehrle’s feat, a leaping grab to take a home run away in the ninth inning of the perfecto. It’s forever immortalized with “The Catch” printed on the center-field wall at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Now it’s immortalized in bobblehead form, too.
About as legendary is Harrelson’s call of the play: “Under the circumstances, that is the greatest catch I have ever seen!”
How can you get your hands on one? From the White Sox:
“The only way to receive the exclusive SoxFest 2019 Dewayne Wise ‘The Catch’ bobblehead is by securing a two-night SoxFest hotel package at whitesox.com/SoxFest.”
There you go.
