Today was pretty unusual, but awesome. Went to the Rays vs Padres. When the gates opened I immediately went to the Rays dugout and caught Desmond Jennings (finally!). I had 2 cards but he would only sign 1.
Next, I got a pic with Jamey Wright and a 5x7 signed by Fernando Rodney.
Went over to the Padres side to try and get Chase Headley on the one ball I brought. He ignored my request, but I noticed Matt Moore was signing. So I made my way back to the Rays side just in time. Asked him to sweet spot it and he asked for my name, so he personalized it. I'm okay with that since I was going to keep it anyways, but just a heads up.

On an unrelated note, we somehow got our tickets upgraded to the single row of seats behind the Padres dugout. I was completely unprepared for that and had absolutely nothing to get signed despite having my view of the game partially blocked by The back of Huston Street's head. Got some cool pics tho and Mom had a great Mothers Day

None of the other Orioles' batters stopped to sign before the game. Machado didn't even leave the clubhouse until the game started. But their pitching staff were very good signing. I missed Jim Johnson because I was in the wrong place, but my fiance got a picture with him.

A little late on this one, but went to the Vincent Jackson signing in Tampa on Saturday for his foundation. I don't know if it wasn't well advertised, or if people in Tampa were too cheap to pay $25, but there were only about 30 people there, and he was scheduled for 3 hours. So there was plenty of time to chat and take pics. He was a real cool dude. As nice as they come.
The signing ticket got you an item of choice, signed 8x10 that they provide (terrible quality though), and a pic with.

Went to the Bucs night practice/"fan fest" since they were holding autograph signings beforehand. They had 4 different autograph sections and you got a voucher with a section letter... and basically that is all you were allowed to get. But without knowing who it would be until you are literally at the table. So it was impossible to plan for this...thankfully they were giving out some blank autograph cards at the tables.
I got section C, which ended up being split in half. They sent some people right and some left, so I figured we would be allowed to hit one table, then the next. Nope.. only half of the section, which was total BS. We were sent to the first table which consisted of Gerald McCoy, Da'Qwan Bowers, Derek Landri, and backup punter (wtf) Michael Koenen. Found out afterwards that the second table had Mark Barron and Adrian Clayborn. We were pretty mad about how that all went down after waiting in the hot Florida sun for 3 hours to get in.
So we walked around the stadium and found that the other sections each had about 15-20 players each at one long table, after we were limited to 4 autographs. My friend raised some hell to one of the event organizers. He was understanding of the situation and let us into section A without vouchers. This was most of the backup offense (Martin, Freeman, VJax, Williams were not signing... same with Revis).
So here were the final results:

Madden 12 cover- Peyton Hillis
2013 Score RC- Mike Glennon
