My favorites this year include the C.J. Wilson commemorative gloves which half will be red and the other half will be blue for kids 13 and under on June 26th against the New York Mets, (if the Mets coming to Arlington isn’t enough to get you to come out), and the previously mentioned Nelson Cruz Walk-Off Bobblehead on June 20th when the Astros come to town.
