San Diego residents wake up to 600 Chris Denorfia bobbleheads
Friday November 13th, 2015

On July 31, 2014, Chris Denorfia was traded from the Padres to the Mariners after four and a half years in San Diego, and while the veteran outfielder is gone, he is still making an impact in Southern California in a very odd way.

Some residents of San Diego’s University City neighborhood got a surprise recently when they heard a crash outside and upon investigating further, found roughly 600 Denorfia bobbleheads had been deposited in front of their home, according to NBC-7 San Diego.
