FLORENCE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky-based minor league baseball team is jumping on the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax story.

It is offering a bobblehead giveaway of the girlfriend. Only the boxes will be empty.

The Florence Freedom says on its website that the boxes will go to the first 1,000 fans on May 23.

They also will rope off a special section just for people to bring imaginary friends.

Freedom General Manager Josh Anderson says fans can make the bobblehead out to be whatever they want it to be.

Te'o, a Notre Dame football star, said this week he was duped in a bizarre lie involving a fake dead girlfriend. The national media did several stories on how Te'o played through the pain of her death.

The Florence Freedom is part of the Independent Frontier League.
