The Orioles are getting the word out ahead of time about their next giveaway.
In preparation for Crush Davis and Samson superhero bobblehead night on Aug. 20, the pair held a mock press conference Wednesday on the team’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to talk about being superheroes.

Davis, who actually is first baseman Chris Davis, has been known as a superhero after the Orioles released an action figure of the alter ego two years ago.
Samson, an English bulldog, is Davis’ dog and superhero sidekick.
The bobblehead depicts Crush as a Superman lookalike, with a cape around his neck and an Orioles “O” on his chest. Samson also wears a cape.
The first 20,000 fans age 15 and over at the game will receive the bobblehead. The Orioles host the Houston Astros at 7:05 p.m. on the night of the giveaway.
The Nationals also held a similar giveaway in June, when fans received a figurine of outfielder Jayson Werth and his Great Dane, Magnus.
