Dodger Greats Bobblehead Series set for 2012
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers have upped their Bobblehead giveaways for 2012 to 10 as part of the Dodger Stadium Greats Bobblehead Series, highlighted by the inclusion of Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax on Aug. 7 against Atlanta.

Marking the 50th anniversary of Dodger Stadium, the club will implement the Greats Series. The names and dates of the other Dodgers legends to be honored with Bobblehead giveaways will be unveiled leading up to the home opener, which will be April 10 against Pittsburgh.

The Dodgers will play at home for five holidays in 2012, with a promotion scheduled for each -- a tote bag on Mother's Day (May 13), $1 Dodger Dogs on Memorial Day (May 28) and Labor Day (Sept. 3), a sports bag and postgame catch on Father's Day (June 17) and fireworks on Independence Day (July 4).

Friday Night Fireworks also returns in 2012. A Matt Kemp replica jersey will be given away on Sept. 4, and Viva Los Dodgers will be a season-long celebration each Sunday, culminating in La Gran Fiesta on Sept. 29.
