And here's a picture of my mother-in-law fighting with a bunch of men for a Koufax autograph
I hadn't seen the picture. I've been looking everywhere to see if I would show up in any pictures since I was close to Koufax on two occasions but I didn't find anything.
If you recall, I did get one autograph from Koufax. I tried to get another one after practice but I was unsuccessful. My mother-in-law tried twice and both times Koufax rejected her. She was upset. It was the funniest thing ever because the autograph is not even for her. It was for me. But I guess because she was trying to help me, she felt bad. She also doesn't understand how she was so close to him (and in the front!) and both times, Koufax didn't grab her item.
It's just about being lucky. Koufax would pick something quickly. I noticed he would do one and then skip one or two fans and then get another item. He wasn't going to sign for everyone. That would take hours.
I did laugh when I saw this picture. It's just great. I emailed her this picture and she also laughed.
Thanks Ron for the picture.
By the way, I'm in this picture too. In the back looking a bit suspicious. (Blue Dodger jacket and hat)
