Luis 'El Cochito' Cruz meets my 'Mexico' jersey

Fans came out to this signing.

I was expecting a low turnout. Boy, I was wrong. Luis 'El Cochito' Cruz was scheduled to sign autographs at Staples in Huntington Park last Friday at 12 p.m.

I showed up at 10:40 a.m. I couldn't come earlier since I was bringing my baby and didn't want him to get bored. All he wants to do now is run.

This is the front. I was in the back of the store!

The hour plus wait went by quick since many fans recognized me and we talked. I can't forget Willy, the greatest Dodger fan of all time.

Inside Staples....

My son was getting a little crazy at the end. He wanted to get out. I haven't really taken him to any events like this before. He's not used to it.

Luis Cruz was awesome. Took pictures with the fans and would say a few words to them.

My goal was to get two items signed. A 2006 World Baseball Classic 'Mexico' jersey and a rookie card. A few members of that team have already signed it.

The following players have signed it.

Fernando Valenzuela (He was a coach)
Adrian Gonzalez (Got it when he was with the Padres)
Oliver Perez (Got it during the WBC @ Angels Stadium)
Benji Gill (Got it during the WBC @ Angels Stadium)
Juan Castro (Got it while he was with the Dodgers)

Yeah, my son can care less about this. :)
