This sounds like a future ripped-from-the-headlines case for one of the Hollywood courtroom shows.
The Dodgers reportedly filed a lawsuit this week against vendor Plan P2 Promotions over 42,000 missing Tommy LaSorda bobbleheads they allege they never received, according to TMZ Sports.
The $175,000 breach-of-contract lawsuit, filed Tuesday, states that the Dodgers ordered “100% hand-painted, break-resistant poly-resin” Lasorda collectible bobbleheads to be distributed at an unspecified home game later this season.
The Dodgers have a dozen bobblehead days slated for the 2019 season, and the team said it has received its orders for eight of those planned promotional giveaways.
The 91-year-old Lasorda is a Dodgers icon after winning World Series titles in 1981 and 1988 during a managerial career that spanned 21 seasons from 1976-96. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997.
