Well over a decade after we first met him in Backyard Baseball, the legend of Pablo Sanchez lives on.
And now, he's officially old enough to drink "Juiceboxes."
In honor of the diminutive slugger, the Lansing Lugnuts will honor Sanchez on his "21st Birthday" on August 18. The first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a Pablo Sanchez bobblehead for their efforts.

This a great P.R. move for the team as well, as we can almost guarantee this is the first time you've thought about the Lansing Lugnuts in 2018.
What '90s kid WOULDN'T want to get their hands on a Pablo Sanchez bobble? He's the lil' dinger-hitting magician we all most identified with. Honestly, I'd take a Pete Wheeler, too.

Once we get the official attendance figures for this game, please clue us in. We'd love to cop two free tickets, too.
The game will be played at Eckman Acres, we assume.
