Starting with the Cardinals series opener Friday, May 2 at 1:20 p.m., a Red Grange bobblehead will be given out to the first 10,000 fans in attendance. "The Galloping Ghost," Grange was named the best college football player of all time by ESPN in 2008, a groundbreaking halfback who played for the University of Illinois and the Chicago Bears.
