Take a Look at the 2015 Vin Scully Bobblehead - Where is the Rainbow?

For the third time over the past four seasons the Dodgers are giving away a Vin Scully Bobblehead, and you can now check it out in the photo above.

As you can see he is standing on the field with a Baseball in hand while waving to the fans.  In fact, as I look at it I can't help but sense that there's something familiar about it.  In fact, I'm certain I've seen this exact same pose before... Maybe immortalized in a photograph we should all know very well.

After a brief search I think I've figured it out.  This bobblehead looks just like the day the Dodgers gave out the very first Scully bobblehead in 2012.  You know, the afternoon when a rainbow appeared to memorialize the occasion.   Check out the photo taken by Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2012 to recall the event below.

Except for the tie and his shirt that's an exact copy of the day, save one glaring omission.


The bobblehead will be given out on Wednesday, September 23rd.
