We just got back to the hotel. Picnic in the Park was MUCH different
from last year. The impetus for the change? Rain, and lots of it.
This year, the autograph session was held in the lower level concourse
on the first base side of the stadium, and the actual picnic was held in
the Patio area.
I had more success at this year's autograph session. The only drawback
to having it in the concourse was that there was no room to move
around. I think I said "Excuse me" more today than I had in my entire life prior to today.
Nonetheless, the results were quite good. Surprisingly enough, I got
just about every big name on the team. Unfortunately, I got almost none
of the lesser names.
Enough small talk, here is the tally!
Gordon Beckham x4 (Card, 8x10, 16x20, Mini Helmet)
