A promotion that only comes around every four years Bobblection is back on Monday, August 24! Forget about FiveThirtyEight, YouGov, Reuters or Quinnipiac; those polls have nothing on the most accurate poll in the nation: Bobblection!

The first candidate to have all 500 of their bobbleheads chosen will be declared the winner. Be on the lookout for a special early voting ticket package, which will allow you to snag both candidates bobbleheads.
2019 was the first year the Renegades rebranded to become the Hudson Valley Veterans. The alternative game worn jerseys were raffled off in-game and in 2019 over $5,000 was raised for Vet2Vet.
