A limited-edition bobblehead will benefit Eureka High School.
A bobblehead of Eureka native and two-time World Series Champion, Ben Zobrist, dressed in his Eureka High jersey, is now available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame online store and at Eureka High School.
In 2015, Zobrist helped the Kansas City Royals win the franchise’s second World Series Championship, hitting .303 in the postseason. During the offseason, Zobrist signed a four-year contract with the Chicago Cubs. Zobrist helped lead the Cubs to the team’s first World Series title since 1908, and was named the 2016 World Series Most Valuable Player after driving in the first of two go-ahead runs in the top of the 10th inning in Game 7.
“Ben’s story is certainly one fo the best in sports,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “Reaching the major leagues is a major accomplishment, but doing what Ben has done in this fashion and with the character he displays is remarkable. The fact that Ben is being honored with a high school bobblehead, which is very rare, is a testament to his connection with the community and his tremendous achievements.”
The Zobrist bobbleheads, which cost $25, will raise money for Eureka High School’s athletic department. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame website says $5 from each bobblehead goes to the school. 500 have been produced in conjuction with Eureka High.
