Bradenton Marauders Giving Away 'Bobble-Babies"

Back in February, we told you about Pirates Director of Florida Operations Trevor Gooby helping deliver a baby at McKechnie Field, the Bucs' spring training home in Bradenton, Fla. Well, to commemorate the six-month anniversary of the occasion, the Marauders, Pittsburgh's Single-A affiliate in the Florida State League, are sponsoring a "Babies on Deck" night at the ballpark, sponsored by Manatee Memorial Hospital and Anna Maria Oyster Bar, during which they'll give away Trevor Gooby "bobble babies" to the first 1,000 fans in attendance.

What is a bobble baby, you ask? Well, you'll just have to check out the video -- furnished by the Marauders -- after the jump to find out. But don't be surprised if you get some flashbacks to this classic moment in the history of American cinema.

Shut up. I'm a '90s kid.
