Bobblehead collectors will need to add a new wing to the man cave, thanks to the Texas Rangers. In 2018, the baseball club is issuing a record 12 Bobblehead giveaways. The club also announced several 2018 individual game ticket specials.
That's great news about the ticket specials but let's get right to the dozen Bobbleheads, which, as has been mentioned previously, is a club record. It easily surpasses the 2017 lineup, which consisted of a mere six Bobbleheads. Do the math: In 2018, there are twice as many. There's even one with a removable mask.
- March 31: TXU Energy Adrian Beltre Home Run Counter Bobblehead
- April 7: Dr Pepper/Brookshire’s Elvis Andrus Bobblehead
- May 26: Medical City Healthcare Star Wars Han Gallo Bobblehead
- June 9: Dairy MAX Joey Gallo Tape Measure Bobblehead
- June 16: Dr Pepper/Albertsons Adrian Beltre Best Friends Bobblehead (1st in a series of 2)
- June 30: Rougie and Smokey the Horse Bobblehead
- July 21: Dr Pepper/Tom Thumb Elvis Andrus Best Friends Bobblehead (2nd in a series of 2)
- August 4: Vladimir Guerrero Hall of Fame Bobblehead
- August 5: Ted Williams First Rangers Manager Bobblehead
- August 18: Coca-Cola Nomar Mazara Bobblehead
- August 28: StubHub Robinson Chirinos Removable Mask Bobblehead
- September 1: Rangers Captain Bobblehead (1st 15,000 fans for all Bobbleheads).
The promotional activities don't stop with the Bobbleheads. There will also be 15 post-game fireworks shows, taking place on 13 different Fridays as well as July 3-4, which this year is a Wednesday.
There will be four post-game concerts:
- April 21: Smash Mouth presented by Budweiser
- April 22: Siggno
- August 18: Casey Donahew presented by Budweiser
- August 19: MercyMe presented by Buckner International
There are three events that fall under the "celebrations" category, two of which feature local celebrities. That's what makes them so celebrated.
- April 20: Falken Tires Adrian Beltre 3000th Hit Mini Bat
- July 20: PowerAde/Kroger Celebration Snow Globe
- August 3: Dr Pepper Eric Nadel 40th Anniversary Microphone
These are the special-edition shirts and caps giveaways designed to draw the freebie-loving sports fan to the gate early-early.

- April 21: Globe Life Rangers pullover, distributed to the first 15,000, 14 and older
