It was t-shirts, not bobble-heads:

Mike Jacobs ISN'T Jewish? (Who knew?)

Oy Vey!

"The Marlins thought they were honoring their Jewish first baseman when they decided to give away Mike Jacobs T-shirts as part of Jewish Heritage Day at Dolphin Stadium this afternoon. One small problem — Jacobs isn't Jewish, a fact the Marlins would have learned if they'd asked Jacobs himself."

NY Daily News article clears the air ... sort of

"HAVE FAITH: The Marlins will distribute Mike Jacobs T-shirts to children tomorrow, on "Jewish Heritage Day." The problem? Jacobs isn't Jewish. When the ex-Met inquired about what seemed like an error, club officials insisted they were separate promotions. "They said it wasn't done intentionally, but I don't know about that," Jacobs said. "It's a big joke around here.""
