Sea Dogs announce 2019 bobblehead lineup

Sea Dogs announce 2019 bobblehead lineup
Series features former Sea Dogs in memorable 2018 Red Sox postseason moments

Portland, Maine- The Portland Sea Dogs have announced their bobblehead giveaway lineup for the 2019 season. The series of bobbleheads will feature four former Sea Dogs in memorable moments from the Red Sox historic 2018 postseason. Each bobblehead will be connecting, creating a nice collector's piece for fans who complete the set.
 
The series will start with a Jackie Bradley Jr. bobblehead giveaway, presented by Dunkin', on Wednesday, June 5th when the Sea Dogs host the Richmond Flying Squirrels. The bobblehead will commemorate Bradley's ALCS MVP award. The Richmond, Virginia native hit two home runs in the series and collected a team high 9 RBI. Bradley played in 61 games for the Sea Dogs in 2012.
 
On Monday, June 24th the Sea Dogs will be giving away Brock Holt bobbleheads, presented by AAA. This bobblehead will feature Holt riding a bicycle, celebrating the fact that he became the first player in MLB postseason history to hit for the cycle. Holt accomplished the feat in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Yankees in Yankee Stadium, a game that the Red Sox won 16-1. Holt appeared in four games for the Sea Dogs on a Major League rehab assignment in 2017.
 
Mookie Betts will be the third bobblehead giveaway of the series, presented by Bath Savings, on July 25th when the Sea Dogs host the Harrisburg Senators. This bobblehead features Betts making a leaping catch against the wall as he did in Game 4 of the ALCS, robbing Alex Bregman of extra bases. Betts, the 2018 American League MVP, hit .355 in 54 games with the Sea Dogs in 2014.
 
The final piece of the series will feature Andrew Benintendi's game ending catch in Game 4 of the ALCS. The bobblehead, presented by Royal River Heat Pumps, will be given away at the August 19th Sea Dogs game. The catch was named the Associated Press Play of the Year. Benintendi hit .295 in 63 games with the Sea Dogs in 2016 before getting called-up to the Red Sox on August 2nd.
 
All bobbleheads are for the first 1,000 fans to enter the ballpark on each date. Gates open 90 minutes prior to the scheduled game time.
 
Tickets for all the games are available online at seadogs.com or by calling the Sea Dogs ticket office at 207-874-9300. A 5-game ticket package is also available that includes the four bobblehead dates plus tickets to the April 18th game, and Opening Day (April 4th) tickets will be included at no extra cost. The package guarantees you the same great Reserved Seat for all of the games. It does not guarantee you the bobblehead, you still must be one of the first 1,000 fans to enter the ballpark to receive the giveaway. The package is available for $50 for adults and $45 for kids and seniors.

Dinner for local Coast Guard

Below is from the Thomaston Public Library in Thomaston, Maine.

Dear Friends,
On Wednesday, the 30th,  the Thomaston Public Library hosted  local Coast Guard families at a lasagna dinner.  During last summer many of these men and women joyfully offered programming for our 40 Days of Summer program and this seemed like an ideal time to celebrate and thank them.  It was so much fun seeing families and service people gathered at the Federated Church in Thomaston enjoying an evening out:  a time to relax and share a lasagna dinner and about a ton of yummy donated desserts!

My thanks go out to my wonderful library staff:  Caroline, Missy, Toby and Blake and to Janet, Lee, Jane, Chris and John for their kitchen prowess and to John for salting the icy parking lot.  The kindness of the Thomaston Grocery, Hannaford and Walmart helped to defray the cost of the groceries and the generosity of Thomaston Random Acts of Kindness and a number of substantial donations from patrons and neighbors allowed us to purchase food and will enable us to facilitate some gift cards for these important Coast Guard people.

Tuesday evening before the dinner, a crew helped assemble the lasagnas and cut veggies for salad allowing the overall project to be  organized, efficient and smooth….a real cooperative event. The Federated Church graciously let us use their great hall and kitchen, and so many friends baked cookies and brownies, I am sure there were some substantial sweet overloads happening post dinner!

Thank you to all participated in this truly fun event.  What an evening, what a great community we live in.

Best,

Diane Giese, Head Librarian
