Something important will occur on Tuesday, September 29th, at 6:00 p.m., that could shape the future of the United States: Bobblection™ will take place.
For the first time since its inception in 2004, the St. Paul Saints of the independent American Association of Professional Basebal (AAPB) are allowing fans from across America to choose the winner of the 2020 presdential election during Bobblection™.
Bobblection is an event during which supporters can choose their candidate by ordering a Trump or Biden bobblehead, for $35, plus receive a free t-shirt that says “I Bobble Voted” in either red or blue.
The first candidate that sells out their 1,000 bobblehead allotment will be declared the winner. The Saints will adopt the Chicago rules of voting, as constituents may purchase more than one bobblehead. For those of you that do not live in the area, do not fret; St. Paul will ship orders out to you.
Additionally, 10 percent of all sales will benefit Children’s Minnesota, whose goal is to champion the health needs of children and families.
The Charleston RiverDogs (Single-A affiliate of the New York Yankees) and Hudson Valley Renegades (Low-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays), both sister teams of St. Paul, will join the Saints in Bobblection™.
The Saints have always conducted Bobblection™ in conjunction with a home game. But due to COVID-19, it shifted their focus to a post-season event.
The collection of teams that have participated in Bobblection™ have accurately predicted the election since its establishment in 2004, with George W. Bush taking four of seven teams that year. But it is the only contest St. Paul have not predicted, with Senator John Kerry winning by 17 bobbleheads.
In 2008 and 2012, President Barack Obama handily defeated his challengers. In 2016, President Trump defeated Senator Hillary Clinton 55 percent to 45 percent.
