Actor Jon Hamm honored to get Cardinals bobblehead

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jon Hamm joked that the bobble head the St. Louis Cardinals honored him with was "probably repurposed" from a Matt Carpenter model. The "Mad Men" star is a lifelong fan who grew up in the suburbs, and is one of the more high-profile Cardinals faithful. He's starring in the baseball movie "Million Dollar Arm" and was scheduled to throw the first pitch before a game against the Reds on Monday night. Bearded and wearing a white Cardinals cap at the podium, Hamm remembered watching the 1982 World Series at age 11. Hamm graduated from John Burroughs High School and Missouri before emerging as Don Draper in the hit AMC television series.
