Actually, this kid didn’t knock it over. I was taking the picture of the fallen balloon man and this kid and his mom were trying to be honorable and help him up. I just stood there and watched. I guess I failed.
Not everyone loves Edwin, but I was happy to get his autograph. Not much chit-chat as he was TEARING through the autographs. But was nice enough when I told him good luck for the upcoming season. I didn’t mind that he was not chatting. He was definitely making sure everyone in line got his autograph as it was the last session of the day on Saturday.
Clay Carroll, that is. Another Reds great from the Big Red Machine. I actually took this photo while I was waiting in line for Johnny Cueto. One of the kids behind me did me a solid and hopped out of the Cueto line we were in a got me an auto from Mr. Carroll – his line was short and moving quickly. Though he didn’t ask for anything, I gave the kid an extra Norris Hopper I had for being nice to an old dork like me. There are some good kids out there. They were fun to talk to while in line.
