Tom Harkin has received many honors and awards during his long career in public service, but one this weekend may stand out "above" the rest. To honor the US senator from Iowa who's retiring this year, the Quad Cities River Bandits will hand out Harkin bobble-heads.
The first 1,000 fans who come to Modern Woodmen Park on Sunday will receive a bobble-head likeness of the Senator, who will also throw out the first pitch before the game at 1:15. He will also be available to autograph the bobble-heads before the game.
This is Harkin's 40th year in Congress representing Iowa.
