This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled officially licensed, limited edition bobbleheads featuring the three members of the Cleveland Indians’ popular Sugardale Hot Dog Derby – Ketchup, Mustard and Onion. The bobbleheads were produced for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by FOCO, an official licensee and manufacturer of Cleveland Indians and MLB merchandise.

Each bobblehead of a smiling Ketchup, Mustard and Onion is on its own base and ready to race. The bobbleheads also include a backing on the base with their name. Each bobblehead is individually numbered to only 2,019, and they are available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store. The bobbleheads, which just arrived and ship now, are $40 each or $100 for the set of three, plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order.

The live Sugardale Hot Dog Derby race started in 2007. At the end of the fifth inning of every Indians home game at Progressive Field, the participants enter from left field and continue around the warning track, finishing just past the visitor’s dugout.

There have been some epic battles since the beginning of the live race, which is designed to get fans on their feet cheering for their favorite wiener as they charge around the warning track. Filled with antics and rough-housing, many races have resulted in Ketchup cheating. Ketchup’s thick-rimmed glasses are in honor of Charlie Sheen’s character Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn from the movie “Major League.”

Opening Day was scheduled for today with the Indians set to host the Detroit Tigers at Progressive Field in the first game of the season for both teams. However, the start of the MLB season was pushed back indefinitely as a result of the coronavirus.

"No one knows when the MLB season will start, but we wanted to give fans a reason to smile and something to look forward to on what would have been Opening Day,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “The Hot Dog Derby is a fan favorite in Cleveland, and these unique bobbleheads will remind fans all year of the fun they have at the ballpark with their friends, family and fellow Indians fans.”
