WILMINGTON, NC – Due to shipping delays in the delivery of the Sharks bobbleheads honoring Trot Nixon, the first 250 through the gates of Buck Hardee’s Field on Saturday, July 17 will receive a voucher to be redeemed for the bobblehead at a later date upon their delivery to the team.

The Sharks front office wishes to extend an apology to all fans in light of this development and will distribute the bobbleheads as soon as possible when they are available. The team will notify fans through all social media outlets and wilmingtonsharks.com as soon as bobbleheads are delivered and fans presenting the aforementioned voucher may receive them.

Trot Nixon, a 2004 World Series Champion, New Hanover County High School alum and 2021 North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame inductee is still scheduled to appear to throw the ceremonial pitch prior to the game and to sign autographs for a limited time after first pitch at 7:05 PM. Special edition autograph cards will be available for the first 300 fans during Nixon’s autograph time.
