For the first time in Israeli baseball history, a team bobblehead was announced for sale to the general public, and the team chose a perfect athlete to take the mantle.

The Team Israel Baseball shop has released bobbleheads of Shlomo Lipetz, sidearm pitcher and the heart and soul of the Israeli National Baseball Team. Lipetz is the longest tenured player on the Israeli National team and has competed with them since their inaugural season in 2007.

The bobblehead itself features Lipetz in his Team Israel uniform, with his name written on the mound in Hebrew around the base.

Sponsored by custom yarmulke shop Klipped Kippahs, the limited edition item is one of 504 individually numbered bobbleheads being sold, with planned shipment set for the end of July-early August. Fans can pre-order this 5.5-inch, one-of-a-kind keepsake now. For orders within the United States, the shop ships via USPS First Class, USPS Priority Mail and UPS.

The Team Israel Baseball shop also features T-shirts, hoodies, hats and kippahs. In addition to the bobblehead, Lipetz has his own image on a t-shirt, along with the words “Shlo Motion.” If that wasn’t enough, fans can buy his jersey in T-shirt form, along with options for the rest of the team as well.
