The Philadelphia Phillies decision to go ahead with their Hunter Pence Bobblehead giveaway was curious to say the least. After trading the outfielder to the San Francisco Giants on the non-waiver July 31st deadline, the team was left with a tough decision on whether or not to give out the figurine to the 44,000 in attendance.

After consulting with the sponsor, Liberty Mutual, and Pence himself, who had no problems with the decision, the Phillies went ahead with the promotion.¬†What the fans didn’t know, is that is also came with a personal letter from the man himself, Hunter Pence.
