After enticing fans last season with a popular Ken "Hawk" Harrelson alarm clock, White Sox officials hope to score again with a SoxFest bobblehead honoring their legendary broadcaster.

The SoxFest 2018 bobblehead will honor Harrelson, who will retire from the broadcast booth in 2018 after 33 seasons with the White Sox and eight decades in pro baseball.

The promotion features Harrelson dressed like he was in 1968 when he made the cover of Sports Illustrated in a powder blue leisure suit.

Naturally, the bobblehead will feature some of Hawk's popular catchphrases such as "He gone!" and "You can put it on the board, yes!"

The collectible figurine is only available by purchasing a two-night SoxFest hotel package ($286 plus taxes, fees and tickets) at whitesox.com/SoxFest.

SoxFest will be held at the Hilton Chicago Jan. 26-28.
