U.S. Olympic champions Justin Gatlin and Ashton Eaton will each have their own bobblehead nights with minor-league baseball teams in their home states this season.

Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic 100m champion, will have his bobblehead distributed at a Pensacola (Fla.) Blue Wahoos game Saturday.

Eaton, the reigning Olympic decathlon champion, will have his bobblehead giveaway at a Eugene (Ore.) Emeralds game on July 2, the second day of the U.S. Olympic Trials also held in Eugene.

Eaton’s bobblehead recreates his arms-wide-open celebration after shattering the record for fastest 400m in a decathlon at the 2015 World Championships.
