Bobby V's Bobblehead Project entry | Complete Bobblehead Project collection

On June 9, 1999, then Mets manager Bobby Valentine pulled off a prank that would live for generations to come in baseball lore. He was ejected from the game but later returned to the dugout in a disguise. Here's your video explanation:

Rock on and Happy 15th Anniversary, Bobby V.
