Manny bobblehead night revisited

The L.A. Dodgers will be revisiting Manny Ramirez bobblehead night Sept. 16. The first time the promotion took place, July 22, Ramirez sat out ... until the sixth inning, when he hit a pinch-hit grand slam. An early AP story I put on the baseball page that night said Ramirez sat out the game. You can imagine my horror when I got home and saw his grand slam trot around the bases on "Baseball Tonight." I kept waiting for them to say it was from a different day, but that announcement never came.
The new bobbleheads are supposed to be formed in the image of Ramirez, as he tipped his cap to the crowd following the pinch-hit slam.
