Cookie Carrasco Immortalized in Bobblehead Form

It was one of the most shocking moments of the 2019 Indians season as the team announced the unnamed blood disorder that prompted Carlos Carrasco to leave the team was, in fact, leukemia.

And it was one of the most touching moments when the Indians showed their support for the starting pitcher during the “Stand Up to Cancer” moment at the All-Star Game at Progressive Field.

Carrasco returned to the team, pitching down the stretch as the Tribe tried to stay in the playoff hunt. Following the season, he was honored with the Roberto Clemente Award, presented annually to a Major League player who best represents the game through character, community involvement, philanthropy and positive contributions, on and off the field.

And now, he’s immortalized in bobblehead form. FOCO announced Friday that they’re selling a new bobblehead, about eight inches tall and depicting him with a “Stand Up to Cancer” card and standing on top of a base of cookies. Carrasco, himself a bobblehead collector, helped design the bobblehead himself.

The bobblehead retails for $45, and is available for pre-order on the FOCO website. Expected delivery is around May. FOCO said it will donate $10 from the purchase price of each Carrasco bobblehead sold this year to Stand Up To Cancer. Both Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association have agreed to forego royalties in order to benefit the charity.
