# Sunday, 26 February 2012
I had originally planned on going to Jupiter today.  However, the weather forecast didn't look very good, and I really didn't want to drive all the way down there and have it rain.  So I decided to spend the morning at Nats camp, and the afternoon at the movies with the wife!

I was at Nats camp until 5pm yesterday.  I was only there until 10am today, and yet I had a MUCH better day.  No Strasburg or Harper of course, but I got all of the Sox guys, and for the very first time I got Ryan Zimmerman!  He came out to the cages by the parking lot at about 9:30, and after he hit he came over to the fence and signed 2 a piece for the 10-15 of us that were there.

Edwin Jackson also signed for everybody by the fence.  All of the players were coming back there to talk to the Rawlings reps, and get new gloves.  Most of them went back inside without signing, but Edwin came over and signed multiples for everybody. 

Right after Zimmerman signed, I got in my car and drove over to the practice fields.  As soon as I got out of my car, I saw Gio Gonzalez walking down the sidewalk.  I approached him, and he told me "After practice".  I told him I had to leave to take my wife to the movies... and it actually worked, lol.  He stopped and signed 2 cards for me.

There is a new setup at the practice fields.  When the players walk over, they go in an opening to the far left of the fence, rather than the one that fans enter through.  They have ropes set up so that you can't get right up to the players.  They still have to walk right by you, there is just a rope between you.  It seemed to me that more players signed taking the field with the ropes up than they usually do without the ropes.

Here are the totals for my abbreviated day:

Bob Boone - 2/2
Corey Brown - 1/1
Sean Burnett - 4/4
