Autographs: Jim Abbott & Kirk McCaskill

I'll catch up with all my stories one day. I'll probably skip a few events that I went because I don't think anyone would be interested to read. But here's one from last February.

February 11, 2015

ESPN Zone Downtown Disney.

My kid is into Lego's right now so he was happy going inside this store.

DSC_0630

Jim Abbott and Kirk McCaskill made an appearance at ESPN Zone in Downtown Disney. It was an event being run by the Angels and their radio station. The autographs were free but you had to print out a flyer through the radio station's website.

I've met Abbott before but wanted him to sign a Starting Lineup figurine for me. Abbott signed this and a Topps card. (Thanks to my buddy Ronny for the USA card)

DSC_0753DSC_0759

That's the only card I had for McCaskill. I'll never finish the 1987 Topps set but it's fun trying.

Abbott lifting my son up so I can take a nice picture.

Thank you Jim Abbott!

Thanks for reading.

Autographs: Bobby Winkles

Yes, you are about to read a post from me.

I've been to some events this year but haven't had the chance to sit down and write about it. I'll try to catch up.

From January 28, 2015.

Private event with College Baseball Hall of Famer Bobby Winkles.

From Wiki {linked here}

..........former baseball coach at Arizona State University. Bobby Winkles coached from 1959–1971 and was the first varsity baseball coach at Arizona State University. Winkles laid the foundation for the legacy that has become Sun Devil baseball. His overall record while head coach at ASU is 524-173. In his 11 years at work at ASU, Winkles coached ASU to its first three national titles (1965, 1967, and 1969). Winkles coached several great players while he was at the helm of the Sun Devils, including Rick Monday, Sal Bando, Reggie Jackson, Sterling Slaughter, and Larry Gura. He was named the 1965 and 1969 NCAA Coach of the Year and The Sporting News Coach of the Year in 1965, 1967, and 1969. Winkles was inducted into the ABCA Collegiate Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997. After coaching at ASU, Winkles went on to manage four years in Major League Baseball with the California Angels (1973–1974) and the Oakland Athletics (1977–1978). His No. 1 jersey is honored at Packard Stadium where the field is named in his honor.

It was great meeting Winkles. One ball on the sweet spot and three Topps cards.

Thank you Bobby Winkles!

I'll write another post in a day or two.

Another former Angels player. Sorry. :)

Adrian Gonzalez & Manny Mota @ Viva Los Dodgers


Adrian Gonzalez will make a special appearance at Viva Los Dodgers this Sunday from 11:00 am to 11:30 am.

The Dodgers will lead off this season of Viva Los Dodgers with a Mexican heritage celebration. Fans are encouraged to arrive early for a chance to take a photo with Gonzalez. Blue Prints will provide one complimentary photo per family or group. Dodger alumnus and broadcaster Manny Mota will also sign autographs from 11:30 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. Musical entertainment will be provided by Latin Grammy-nominated Trio Ellas and Mexican regional artist Jesus Mendoza.

Viva Los Dodgers takes place each Sunday of every homestand two hours prior to game. The season-long initiative celebrates Latino culture in Los Angeles and the legacy of Latino Dodgers past and present at a family-friendly pregame festival at the historic 76 station. The event is free with a game-day ticket. All Dodger fans are welcome. Gonzalez and his wife, Betsy, will launch Adrian Gonzalez’s Viva Los Dodgers Days Sunday.

“Viva Los Dodgers is a great family event I’ve been a part of since I joined the club and I’m happy to take some time Sunday to meet some fans,” said Gonzalez. “My wife Betsy and I are also pleased to host families for Viva Los Dodgers because we want families who might not have the means to come here to experience a Sunday at Dodger Stadium. We think what we do in the community is just as important as what I do on the field. This is a special program to us.”
