Yesterday, Major League Baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays released their promotional schedule for the upcoming 2013 season and outside of the usual Family Fun Days and Evan Longoria wall cling night, there was one promotional night that stood out above the rest.

On April 24th, when the Rays host the New York Yankees, the first 10,000 fans through the gates of Tropicana field will get a free “Joe Maddon gnome bobblehead” to take home with them.

Below is a photo of the gnome and clearly, it might be the stuff that nightmare fuel is made of:


When reached for comment about the gnome giveaway, Maddon wasn’t sure how to describe the honor:

“It’s somewhat overwhelming to be characterized in gnomedom like that. It’s really difficult to describe that feeling that someone has at that moment. I’m pleased, I’m honored, I’m humbled by the entire event. And hopefully I won’t scare too many kids.”
