The State College Spikes are bringing Christian Hackenberg back to town…in bobblehead form.
On August 13, the team will hand out bobbleheads of the former Penn State quarterback to the first 1,000 people through the gates of its game against Staten Island that night.
Hackenberg departed for the NFL after his junior season at Penn State, and was drafted by the New York Jets in the second round, No. 51 overall. He is the school’s all-time leader in career passing yards, passing touchdowns and single-game yards.
Gates open at 6:05 p.m. and the first pitch is at 7:05 p.m.
