When I started this blog, I did so with the intent of providing myself an outlet to talk about my hobby, not knowing if anyone would ever actually stumble across it let alone read it. Well, about a year later I now have a blog that has been viewed more than 2,000 times. To be honest though, I don't even know if that is a high number, but it makes me enthused nonetheless.
I would like to thank the people who have tweeted, re-tweeted, and Facebooked my blog in the pursuit of, well...nothing really, other than my happiness. A sincere thank you to all of you out there who read this drivel on a consistent basis and pretend to be amused. Enough of the tomfoolery, and on to some autograph stories that I probably wouldn't get around to sharing in another post!
This first picture is of a ball I had signed by Yu Darvish last season when the Rangers were in town to pay the Padres at Petco Park. This particular signing occurred during batting practice, when Mr. Darvish was waved over by some kids and began signing away. I was lucky to get him to sign an MLB baseball on the sweetspot, though he did kind of sign in such a way that part of the signature touches the stitches.
In case anyone is interested, I have an Albert Pujols signed baseball (side panel) that I am willing to trade for a ball of someone I do not have yet. I have posted a picture of the Albert Pujols ball in a previous post, if you want to see what it looks like. If you also read that story, you'll know that I actually got two balls signed by Mr. Pujols at one time, so I have the extra to spare. Please message me on here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if this interests you.
Again, thank you to all of you for reading and to anyone that has helped me get the word out there about my blog. The last few months have actually accounted for 3/4 of my views, so whatever we are doing is working.
Until next time everyone...
