They also had MacDougal scheduled to appear, but no matter how many times he tried, he kept winding up four feet outside the booth.

If I didn't have to work, I'd go to meet Harold.

Chicken:

And if they can get it in the zone and dunk a few of them they need to be signed immediately!

Especially if they are left handed. Granted, if you show talent, Kenny will try to get you on a home town discount and immediately trade you to New York.

I went last year and it was an absolute nightmare. It could maybe be because it was AJ and Crede there and we were coming off a WS title. Hopefully you guys have better luck this year

Yeah, the line numbered easily over 1,000 people last year. It was weird because the line kept growing and growing even though the people at the back of it had no chance of receiving an autograph.

Probably a dumb question, but are the autographs free at this event?

Thanks. I figured they probably were but it never hurts to ask. :smile:

Just got back from the Taste. It was MUCH less crowded than last year. There was probably only about a quarter as many people as last time. If you got there early enough you could have went through the line twice. Anyone who showed up a little after the players started signing got autographs. I stuck around and got Kittle and Melton, too.
