Andre Dawson, with any luck I will get Ozzie Smith to sign it - just missed him today ; (
Jeff Conine, Mr. Marlin
Casey Kotchman, when I thanked him he said, "it's my pleasure, any time." You won't hear that from players very often!
***Henderson Alvarez, ROMLB on SS.
From the Cardinals
Jim Edmonds, an 8 x Gold Glover & a super nice guy.
Jon Jay, signed the pic below & my 2011 WS Celebration pic.
Oscar Taveras, this prospect is getting better every day.
Oh yeah, TTM today:
David Akers, signed 2 CICs.
Tyrann Mathieu, signed a CIC & kept his.
Austin Carr, signed 2 CICs & an IC. What a great scorer & shooter! Needs a new sharpie ; )
Billy Casper, a great golf champion & nice guy.
Lee Trevino, signed my 1981 Ryder Cup Team pic previously signed by Kite, Crenshaw, Irwin & Nelson.

amazing stuff. Love the Hawk success.. Akers looks great also. Absolutely killing it this ST

Rick, thank you. My buddy had the same pic that had already been signed by Ozzie (except it was a 16x20) and the Hawk didn't sign it... I sent the Akers to 49ers camp but the PM was from South Jersey(?).

That McKeon looks great, also interesting about Kotchman being so nice, when he was with Cleveland last year, he was a weird guy saying that the manager said he couldn't sign during batting practice (as Manny Acta was signing for us).

Wow Beltran signed.. maybe Pujols being away is showing the true colors of the Cardinals? He was sort of an lol

He was super nice to me. Maybe he knows this is his last team...

I can only tell by previous years of ST but since Pujols left, I can see the change in the team being more friendly towards the fans. Pujol was starting to affect Yadier & other players. This is now Yadi's Team & even Beltran can not influence how the players are all much more engaging with the fans during ST.
