The Orioles allowed fans to pick which player would be featured on a bobblehead during Fan Appreciation Weekend in 2012, and the promotion returns again this season. Last year, shortstop J.J. Hardy beat out second baseman Robert Andino, first baseman Mark Reynolds and pitchers Jake Arrieta and Tommy Hunter for the bobblehead. The Orioles recently announced that this year's choices are: Wei-Yin Chen (above), Chris Davis, Jason Hammel, Jim Johnson and Nate McLouth. Third baseman Manny Machado is a curious omission, but all five are good candidates.
