Last year's National League MVP, Joey Votto made his major league debut with the Reds on September 4, 2007 against the New York Mets. He pinch hit and struck out, but that wasn't a sign of things to come. Votto has become one of Cincinnati's most disciplined and consistent hitters. He was second in the National League Rookie of the Year voting in 2008, losing out to Chicago's Geovany Soto. This particular bobblehead is one of a series of four that the Reds released in 2009. The first 30,000 fans to show up on Saturday May 9th to watch the Reds take on the Cardinals were fortunate enough to take one of these home. Unfortunately, if they stuck around for the complete game, Cincinnati fans would have left heartbroken watching the Reds lose to the Cards in 10. Shouldn't have that problem now that Pujols left St. Louis! Woo-Hoo!
