"People ask me how I feel about it," said Culberson, the Atlanta Braves utility player originally from Rome, Ga. "I said I have half a bobblehead now. It took me a long time." ‡e bobblehead is a mash-up of Culberson and his doppelganger, Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson, who is from Marietta and whose family still lives in the Cobb county seat. ‡e resemblance between the two players is striking, and something they have embraced with a sense of humor. Swanson's image makes up the le‹ side of the "Swanberson" bobblehead, wearing a red jersey, while Culberson has the right, wearing a white jersey. On the base of the bobblehead, the moniker "Swanberson" is proudly displayed. ‡e bobblehead will be given to the Žrst 15,000 fans to enter the gates for the June 11 game DANSBY SWANSON CHARLIE CULBERSON Culberson chasing Swanson: Atlanta Braves' Dansby Swanson is chased by Charlie Culberson, le•, a•er Swanson hit a one run single RBI in the ninth inning to end a baseball game against the Miami Marlins, Sunday, April 7, 2019, in Atlanta.
