It is no secret that the New York Mets have one of the best TV broadcasting crews in all of MLB.
So, to honor the iconic trio, the Mets recently announced that they will be doling out three separate bobbleheads of Keith Hernedez (July 9th), Ron Darling (Aug. 13), and Gary Cohen (Sept. 17) as part of a series that will interlock to create the SNY TV booth to the first 25,000 fans through the gates.
Cohen, Hernandez, and Darling have been behind the microphone for Mets telecasts on SNY since the network’s beginning in 2006.
In addition to Hernedez’s bobblehead on July 9th, New York will retire Hernandez’s uniform number 17 in a pre-game ceremony that afternoon.
Hernandez and Darling are both three-time Emmy Award winners for “Best Sports Analyst” in New York, Plus, the duo were Mets teammates from 1983–1989, including the 1986 World series Championship team.
Cohen is entering his 34th season as a play-by-play announcer for New York. Cohen first joined the Mets broadcast team as a radio announcer for WFAN, where he called Mets games for 17 years.

Note: get there as early as possible for each tilt to ensure that you will receive a bobblehead.
