Taking someone out to the ballgame is no longer about peanuts and crackerjack. You now need a digital wallet to get the full-on experience.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are doing what’s billed as the first cryptocurrency collectable giveaway at their game with the San Diego Padres Sept. 21.

The first 40,000 fans will receive a card with a unique code. They will then visit a website and unlock a digital bobblehead using the code. Then can then download said bobblehead to an ethereum wallet.

The unlocked bobblehead content will be a surprise, as the download contains a random assortment of Dodgers stars, including pitcher Clayton Kershaw, third baseman Justin Turner, or reliever Kenley Jansen.

“We’re excited for our first-ever Crypto giveaway, and to explore an entirely new marketplace with our fanbase,” said Lon Rosen, Dodger EVP.  “We hope this piques the interest of Dodger fans, and will help launch a new age of digital collectibles and promotions.”

The event is being billed as a first in professional sports
