This limited edition bobblehead celebrates the storied career of announcer Dan Baker -a man whose voice is synonymous with Philadelphia sports.
Dan Baker finished his 46th season as the Philadelphia Phillies public address announcer in 2017. He has announced five World Series (1980, 1983, 1993, 2008, & 2009) and two MLB All-Star Games (1976 & 1996).
Dan also served as the Philadelphia Eagles PA announcer for 29 seasons (1985-2013) including three NFC Championship Games (2002, 2003, & 2004). Since the Army-Navy football classic moved to Lincoln Financial Field in 2003, Dan has served as its voice when the game is played in Philadelphia. In addition, Dan provided radio play-by-play for BIG 5 and Drexel Basketball (1977-2012), Temple Football (1977-1983), and Penn Football (1986-1988).In 1997, Dan was inducted into the Philadelphia BIG 5 Basketball Hall of Fame, and in 2012 he was inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame. Since 2009 Dan has co-hosted a baseball talk show called the "Bull Session" with former Phillies slugger Greg Luzinski on WBCB 1490 AM.
This bobblehead exceeds my expectations. So real. I am really excited to add this to my collection.
Looks like him. Mike is a good touch.
Dan Baker embodies the ultimate professional. He regularly professes his unmatched knowledge of Phillies lore and history. His loyalty to the Phillies is equaled only by his determination for detail ( similar to that of the bobblehead ) in any assignment he has been given or has sought. It is clearly " a must " to have a bobblehead designed in his image and one I will place in the center of my collection of Phillies memorabilia. I was so glad to be made aware of this wonderful production.
