FLORENCE, Ky., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- A Kentucky Frontier League baseball team is making light of Notre Dame player Manti Te'o's made-up girlfriend by giving away imaginary bobbleheads.

Florence Freedom announced the first 1,000 fans at the May 23 game at UC Health Stadium receive the Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead, which is actually an empty box, WXIX-TV, Cincinnati, reported Monday.

"This will be the best kind of bobblehead a fan could get," Freedom General Manager Josh Anderson said. "Because now fans can make the bobblehead out to be whatever they want it to be."

The team said a section of the stadium will be reserved for fans to sit with imaginary significant others.

The promotion mocks Notre Dame football player Manti Te'o being hoodwinked by a scammer who invented an online persona to carry on a romantic relationship with the player.
