Spring Training 2009 at Roger Dean

Being that i work about 3 minutes from Roger Dean stadium.. I get to see allot of the players in the parking lot or the hotel…. Plus i try to make it out there at lunch time just to see if i could get somebody to sign. And it’s paid off…… The first day i went out there i was able to get a couple of players to sign baseballs and a bat for me. Harvey Garcia stopped and signed and was very nice, Ricky Nolasco also was very nice and made sure very one had gotten his autograph, Andrew Miller and Dan Uggla are class acts! Cameron Maybin was really cool and funny. Jorge Cantu also signed, as did Leo Nunez,Scott Proctor,Chris Volstad,and Anibal Sanchez. Now the ones that didn’t Cody Ross and Alfredo Amezaga went around the batting cages to make sure that didn’t run into any fans. That sucked! I’m missing Amezaga and had two great pictures for him to sign. But there’s always next time…..Also Hanley just walked by everyone and flat out said no….. I just wished he would have signed for the kids that where there waiting for him. Overall great time and can’t wait to do it again. Hopefully Monday wouldn’t be that busy at work….And if you haven’t gone make sure to go!!
