Chasers Commemorate "Pine Tar Incident" with George Brett "Bobble-Arm" Giveaway
OMAHA, Neb. - The upcoming homestand features the Storm Chasers first home non-conference games and will also feature a premiere giveaway of the year, the George Brett "Bobble-Arms" depicting the famous Pine Tar Incident! The doll shows Brett on that fateful day on July 24, 1983 at Yankee Stadium, when his go-ahead homer was taken away because his pine tar was farther than 18 inches from the knob inciting Brett to charge out the dugout waving his arms. This historic giveaway highlights a jam-packed eight-game homestand!
