Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs salute Jamie Moyer

Bobblehead doll giveaways are nothing new in the baseball world.

But when a team goes out of its way to create something distinctive, ESPN Playbook feels obliged to tip its cap.

On Tuesday night, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, will give away bobbleheads of Jamie Moyer in his high school uniform to the first 3,000 adults through the turnstiles of their game against Indianapolis.

Moyer attended Souderton Area High School, located about 30 miles from the Iron Pigs' home in Allentown. Moyer, now 49 and pitching for the Rockies, has 268 career wins in the major leagues.

This is not a picture of him.

The Iron Pigs also have two other notable promotions this week. The world famous Phillie Phanatic makes an appearance on Wednesday, and the first 3,000 adult fans will receive Vance Worley replica eyeglasses on Thursday.

Perhaps best of all, fans at each and every Iron Pigs home game are treated to the team's fabled pork race between mascots Diggity, Chris P. Bacon and Hambone.
