BPensyl125's Success Thread
I've posted threads in the past (Eagles Training Camp and a few others pertaining to Spring Training) and I have finally decided to create my own thread where I will post my IP successes.
I went to an Arizona Fall League game today and saw the Peoria Javelinas vs. the Salt River Rafters. I think I had a great day and would recommend attending one of these games if you can. Attendance was only 428 and even when I went to a game last year with Harper and Trout on the same team there was not much more than that.
I got the below on the AZ Fall League Fan Guide (all Salt River players)
Matt Williams - Current 3B coach for AZ and Salt River's Manager (As a Giants fan I am kicking myself for not bringing my Giants mini helmet)
Isaiah Froneberger - Pitcher for the Rockies
Salvador Sanchez - Pitcher for the White Sox
Jason Martinson - INF for the Nationals
Kent Matthes - OF for the Rockies
Andre Rienzo - Pitcher for the White Sox
Ryan Perry - Pitcher for the Nationals
1 other signature whose name I cannot make out but know it is a Nats player
I got the below guys on their respective MLB team 8x10 (all Peoria teams)
Jeudy Valdez - INF for the Padres
Cory Spangenberg - INF for the Padres (#7 Prospect for the Padres)
Josh Byrnes - GM for the Padres was in the stands (along with many others)
Cody Asche - INF for the Phillies (#18 Prospect for the Phillies)
Kyle Simon - Pitcher for the Phillies
Nate Roberts - OF for the Twins
Logan Bawcom - Pitcher for the Mariners
James Paxton - Pitcher for the Mariners (1/3 of the Mariners 3 headed Monster of Pitching in the Minors and have gotten all 3)
Vincent Catricala - INF for the Mariners (#8 Prospect for the Mariners and their 2011 Minor League POY)
Lance Painter - Pitching Coach for Peoria
Now for the big ones:
Billy Hamilton - 8x10 picture of him during the Futures Game
Mike Zunino - 8x10 picture of him during his introductory Press Conference (2012 Golden Spikes Award Winner and someone who I think will make a BIG impact next year)
Overall a great day and was able to get the guys I really wanted. There were numerous big name faces in the crowd including Padres GM Josh Byrnes, Manager Bud Black, Catcher Yasmani Grandal, Omar Minaya, AJ Hinch, Trevor Hoffman, and Brad Ausmus. Also heard that Ryne Sandberg was in the crowd yesterday.

James Paxton - 8x10
Mike Zunino - Mini Mariners Bat
China's WBC team was also working out at the facility. I was not aware of that or I would have brought something for them to sign. As I was waiting I saw some of their players walking to the facility (I didn't know at the time they were there) and could have got some of them too. Former A's and Mets Manager Art Howe is one of their coaches. Will be hitting up the Padres on Sunday and back to Seattle on Monday.Looking for past/present Broncos autographs

Hit up the Padres practice today and had a great day. I was able to get some guys who I didn't get last year.

Andrew Cashner (I went for him over Trevor Hoffman because Hoffman signs all the time)
Chase Headley - 5x7
Some guys signed out in the parking lot which is where I got Headley and Guzman but I held off on getting others because I am going back tomorrow to try and get my #1 goal Cameron Maybin. I know what car he drives so I can be on the lookout. One of the Padres coaches (Phil Plantier) threw two practice used balls over the fence and I was able to get one so I am happy about that. Last night I was at the Coyotes-Blue Jackets game and saw Rangers Pitcher Derek Holland and I was the only who recognized him so he smiled and shot me a waive. Even if I had a pen I didn't think it would be an appropriate situation to ask for an autograph.Looking for past/present Broncos autographs

Hey I see you do the mariners and such. I have been doing them for the past couple of days must say It is probably the easiest graphing I have done. Though Montero is a jerk turned down a kid 1 on 1.Super collecting Michael Pineda and Carlos Delgado Hidden Content

I hit them up last Wednesday and will be tomorrow. I live right down the street so it's really easy for me to get there. The Mariners are a great team to graph and the setup is perfect for graphing. On the flip side though the Padres is tough in the facility but you can totally rake them in outside the parking lot. Montero's a tough graph now. I was able to get him last year but he's been playing the "gotta get to a meeting" excuse. I heard Shoppach called him out on it too.Looking for past/present Broncos autographs
