I poked around the festivities a little bit, but my main focus was getting some autographs last night. First up was Dusty Baker who was nice and chatty with all the fans. Fun to talk to for a few seconds. Thanks, Dusty. I got in line for Chris Dickerson and Norris Hopper after Dusty, but was too late and didn’t end up getting signatures from those guys. No more signings happened until 6:30, so I got in line very early for Clay Carroll and Jim O’Toole so I would make sure I got to meet them before I had to jet. I got fantastic signatures from both.
Stuff to look for:
– My Home Skillet Tabari said he saw some great deals at the collectibles tables. That can be rare.
– There are tables located around Redsfest handing out Topps baseball cards of a few players. They are Redsfest branded cards, perfect for autographs. I picked up Joey Votto, Aaron Harrang and Chirs Dickerson. I know there are more… Bronson Arroyo and Brandon Phillips for sure… and probably a few others.
– The kids play areas are awesome. You little ones will have a blast.
More photos today… watch out.
