Dodgers suing promotion company over Tommy Lasorda bobbleheads
The Los Angeles Dodgers are planning to honor one of the most influential figures in franchise history later this season with a Tommy Lasorda bobblehead night, but they need the company that produces said bobbleheads to cooperate before they can do that.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the Dodgers are suing a company called Plan P2 Promotions after they claim they submitted an order to have 42,000 Lasorda bobbleheads made and never received the product. The team is seeking $175,000 from the company for allegedly breaching its contract.
The Dodgers have 11 bobblehead giveaway nights planned for this year, and they already gave away Walker Buehler bobbleheads earlier in the season. It’s unclear who will be producing the rest of the items or what the plans are for the Lasorda bobbleheads.
Lasorda, 91, managed the Dodgers for many years and has been a part of the organization for nearly seven decades. One of the best images from the postseason last year was him partying with the team when they clinched their second consecutive World Series berth.
