They're six-feet-tall and each wields a wooden baseball bat. But, most importantly, their heads bobble when you bop them.

Starting in mid-May, 35 life-size, bobblehead baseball player statues will be scattered around downtown Chicago.

The city of Chicago says the giant bobbleheads are in honor of Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, which will be played at U.S. Cellular Field on July 15.

The statues will be decorated to represent each major league baseball team. And after the All-Star Game, they'll be auctioned off online for charity.
