The Los Angeles Dodgers announced the first half of their 2023 promotional schedule, which so far includes eight new bobbleheads for fans to collect, but no Hall of Fame or legends were announced. Each month through June features two bobblehead days.
The 2023 Dodgers bobblehead series will kick off on April 1 with Freddie Freeman for a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It will be the second bobblehead for Freeman since signing with the Dodgers, with his first coming in his team debut season last year.
The next bobblehead giveaway features Julio Urías two days later on April 3, when the Dodgers host the Colorado Rockies.
That is followed by a long absence of no bobblehead giveaways, with the next one taking place nearly a month later on May 1 when Dustin May gets one as the Dodgers face the Philadelphia Phillies. The Minnesota Twins then come to town on May 15 for Mookie Betts bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium.
The first bobblehead giveaway in June is set for the 13 with Will Smith receiving his second bobblehead when the Dodgers host the Chicago White Sox. Following Smith, Clayton Kershaw receives a bobblehead two days later with the White Sox still in town.
In July, the Dodgers are giving the first bobbleheads to a pair of their young stars, with Gavin Lux receiving his on July 3 against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and Tony Gonsolin getting one on July 6 against the Pirates as well.
No J.D. Martinez or Noah Syndergaard bobbleheads were announced, but one for the Dodgers’ new designated hitter is available from FOCO.
Promotional items will be given out to the first 40,000 ticketed fans in attendance, while supplies last, at the guest’s point of entry, unless otherwise noted on Dodgers.com/Promotions.
In addition to the popular bobblehead promotions, the Dodgers promotional schedule includes a new drone show, the return of Friday Night Fireworks, multiple jersey giveaways, Star Wars Night, Hello Kitty Night, heritage nights, and more.

Will the Dodgers announce more bobbleheads?
The Dodgers will announce additional promotions and ticket packs for dates after the All-Star Game at a later time, and those will surely include more bobblehead nights.
The spacing on the already-announced bobblehead giveaways does leave open the possibility that more will be announced later for the first half of the season as May is the only month where the bobblehead giveaways are not close together.
One potential day to keep an eye on is April 29, which was announced as a giveaway but has not yet been revealed as to what it is.
