Where are the Mariano Rivera Bobbleheads? That was the question Tuesday night after the supply truck broke down in Newark.
Eighteen thousand fans waited anxiously in line for the legend’s Bobblehead they were promised — instead of Bobbleheads they received vouchers.
Then the Yankees apparently ran out of vouchers. It was tense and the game against Tampa Bay had not started.
Fans turned to social media as the situation began to get ugly, many tweeting photos of the unruly mob.
One fan said, “people are starting to get angry.” Another posted a picture of a voucher.
The Gates at the stadium opened more than 30 minutes later than normal. Around the third inning the Bobbleheads finally arrived, and the quickly choked stairwells became chaotic as 18,000 rushed to get the prized collector’s item.
Yankees fan Rick Cielo said, “It was the worst experience I have ever had at Yankee Stadium. It was horrible.
In the end fans were happy to get the dolls some said it was worth the wait.
