If players from the 2015 Cubs were ranked by popularity, Chris Denorfia likely wouldn’t crack the top half. Nothing against the veteran outfielder, but with a team full of young stars, it’s easy to lose Denorfia in the crowd.

But Denorfia is by no means garbage, unlike hundreds of his bobbleheads.

A group of roommates in San Diego found an unusual pile near their doorstep, 600 bobbleheads of Denorfia from his time with the Padres.

Denorfia played for the Padres from 2010 into the 2014 season before being traded to the Mariners. As Fox Sports reports, it’s unclear if the Padres hosted an extremely unsuccessful bobblehead game or if it was canceled before even happening.

Regardless of why there were so many or how they made it to the San Diego doorstep, Denorfia has a few more fans because of it. From NBC San Diego:

I’m now a huge Chris Denorfia fan, said Philip Jia, who along with his roomates had never heard of the former Padres player now sitting in more boxes than they could carry.

Denorfia is an unrestricted free agent after finishing his one-year, $2.6 million contract with the Cubs. While the Cubs may still want a veteran player in the outfield, it would almost assuredly be in a reserve role.
