As the return of baseball draws closer, the Toronto Blue Jays have announced which bobbleheads fans can expect to bring home this season.

The team has chosen to feature reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who has been named an all-star in five of the last six seasons. The most surprising choice was outfielder Kevin Pillar who is coming off his first full season as an everyday player.

Pillar’s selection was a pleasant surprise to the 27-year-old, who reacted to the news enthusiastically.

Fans will first have the opportunity to grab a Donaldson bobblehead on April 24 while Tulowitzki and Pillar will be featured July 3rd and 24th, respectively. The Blue Jays also have two trio bobblehead promotions with sluggers Carlos Delgado, Vernon Wells, and Jose Bautista on May 29 and aces Dave Stieb, Pat Hentgen and Roy Halladay on August 14.
