Aaron Harang Bobblehead

The Reds gave out this bobblehead on June 13, 2007 when the Reds took on the Angels. Unfortunately for fans, they witnessed a 6-3 loss to Los Angeles mostly due to Vladimir Guerrero feasting on Reds pitchers for 4 RBIs. Harang was with the Reds from 2003-2010. His best year with the Reds was in 2006 when he led the National League in strike outs (216) and wins (16) and complete games (9). It is disappointing to note that Harang didn't even place in Cy Young voting for the National League in 2006. One of the great things Harang started while in Cincinnati was Aaron's Aces, a ticket program for military families to attend Red's games every Sunday that Cincinnati is hosting a game at Great American Ballpark. Since Harang is no longer with the Reds, Harang's former teammate and friend Jay Bruce has decided to continue sponsorship. Harang is currently a starting pitcher for the Dodgers and while I wish he was still in a Reds uniform, I will continue to cheer for him no matter what team he may play for.
