Bobble of the Day
Player: Marla Hooch
Team: Akron Rubberducks
Manufacturer: Destroyer Promotions
If you haven’t seen the movie “A League of their Own” then you’re an asshole. It’s classic baseball movie right up there with The Sandlot, Major League and Field of Dreams. When World War II threatens to shut down Major League baseball, an all-girls baseball team saves the day and brings many people hope. The team is good and Marla Hooch is the center of attention.
Not known for her good looks, Marla proves she can hit the shit out of the baseball and proves everyone wrong. I’m pumped the Rubberducks decided to honor her, as she deserves it.
First thing is the vintage World War uni look. The gals wore skirts as uni’s and they look sharp as hell with the high red socks. If you’ve seen the movie you can see everyone in the stands wearing clothes from the 50’s. Marla’s facial features look exactly like her and her stance is replicated as it is in the movie. The Rubberducks nailed this one for sure.
Sniper Rating: What stands out the most, is the saying on the front of the base. “What a Hitter”. This phrase says it all. If you’re looking for a legit collector’s item, make sure you score this asap. I can only see these going up in value as it was a great movie and even better theme. Marla Hooch scores a 9.0. If the box wasn’t a standard white, I’d give it a stand up 10. It’s that good.
