If you're heading to the 209 this summer, make sure to stop by the Stockton Ports' ballpark as the Oakland Athletics' minor league team have special celebrations planned for the city's favorite UFC fighters.

Hometown heroes Nick Diaz and are getting their own bobbleheads courtesy of the single-A ball club, since we're guessing a giveaway of Diaz brand joints was out of the question. Nick will be first up to bat, as his doll will be distributed to the first 1,000 fans at Sunday's game against the San Jose Giants.

In addition to the awesome piece of memorabilia, the May 7th game will also appropriately commence at 2:09 p.m. No word yet as to whether they'll be forgoing the traditional 7th inning stretch for a celebratory 4:20 break.

Meanwhile, Nate's big bobblehead day is scheduled for the July 14th game against the Island Empire 66'ers.

Unfortunately, it sounds like the upcoming baseball games will be the only sporting events we'll be seeing the Diaz brothers at in the near future. Neither fighter seems particularly interested in a return to the Octagon, and who could blame them? They're having way too much fun hanging out with Drake, Snoop Dogg, and the Wu-Tang Clan to care at the moment.
