The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today that D-backs' infielder/outfielder Ryan Roberts was the winner of the Fan Vote Bobblehead contest conducted earlier this season and will have his own bobblehead distributed to the first 15,000 fans attending the Sept. 24 game against the San Francisco Giants during the last weekend series of the regular season at Chase Field. Fifty random fans will also receive a limited-edition bronze version of the Roberts bobblehead on Sept. 24.
"I want to say thank you to the fans for voting me the winner," Roberts said. "It definitely means a lot to me. In this game, it is comforting to know you actually have people who recognize you and cheer for you. Winning a bobblehead solidifies the fact you actually have a fan base. I would also like to thank my teammates and coaches for helping me along the way. This honor is another of many memorable experiences I have had and hope to have as a D-back. I am definitely very appreciative."
