Former Shen Standout to be Honored During "I Love Upstate New York Night" at Joe Bruno Stadium in Troy.

Unfortunately, former Shen star and World Series Atlanta Braves standout Ian Anderson won't be in Troy for the ValleyCats game on Wednesday night, but they'll be no shortage of Anderson's likeness throughout the ballpark.

Shout-Out to the ValleyCats for putting Anderson in his Shen green uni!

That's because, on Wednesday, the Tri-City ValleyCats will be honoring our hometown pitching hero with his own bobblehead doll - joining the ranks of the great bobbles given away at the Joe over the years for former Mayor Jerry Jennings and News 10 ABC's Steve Caparizzo to name just a few.

On Wednesday night July 13th, the ValleyCats are home taking on the New York Boulders, game time is 6:30 PM.

According to the team's Facebook post, the first 1,000 fans will get a free bobblehead in the likeness of Ian Anderson wearing his hometown Shen green uniform - which I love BTW, no disrespect to the ATL.

Anderson, a 2021 World Series Champion with the Atlanta Braves is in his third big league season and is considered a top-tier pitcher in MLB.  So far in 2022, Anderson already has 7 wins on the season as the team approaches the midway point of the year.
