Paderborn Untouchables Bobble Head Night

On June 17, 2022, the Paderborn Untouchables of the First German Bundesliga, will have a bobble head promotion. The initiator of this event, Sascha Hermann, wanted to be the first in Europe to organize a bobble head promotion in Europe.

Against the team from the German capital, the Berlin Flamingos, the Paderborn Untouchables will give a bobble head of Oliver Neisemeier, to the first two hundred fans who will pass the turnstiles.

Sascha Hermann, who is a member of the Untouchables, wanted this to be a special occasion. The person, the bobble head is modeled after, is Oliver Neisemeier, a former player of the Untouchables and now a respected member of the Paderborn society. Neisemeier is the owner of a construction company that has created jobs for six players of the German national team. Neisemeier is so well known and respected, his nickname is “Der Bürgemeister” (the mayor). If you wonder how big this bobble head will be, the size will be about 29 cm (11.42 inch), which is rather big for a bobble head. The giveaway is produced by a Chinese company that works for the Washington Nationals and several NBA clubs as well. Of course, Oliver Neisemeier will be the guest of honor on this bobble head night. He will throw out the first pitch.

Sascha Hermann, is a baseball addict, who is very active in promoting the game in Germany. During the European championships in Bonn, in 2019, he gave away big cardboard heads of German players, just to improve the atmosphere. In the meantime, he and his organization, Baseball Fans Deutschland, have created a mascot to support the German team. The mascot is shaped like a fox and named Manny. The name was chosen in a “name the fox contest” on Facebook. With everything Sascha is doing, he is worth his weight in gold for German baseball.

Sascha already has an idea for a new bobble head, which I think is very cool.  It will be modeled after a player of the German national team. I will keep his name a secret for now. 

I’d like to thank Sascha Hermann for the information that made it possible to write this blog post.
