My Saturday Morning: Baby Update, Martinez Autograph, Ethier "Middle Finger" Pix

I don't want to jinx myself but I have a great baby. He doesn't cry. He doesn't get angry. He's a calm baby. Which means I only get up in the middle of the night when I feed him. The only bad thing about that is that once I get up, I can't go back to sleep. I've always been like that. For example, I got up around 6 a.m. to feed my son. After that I started watching t.v. and getting my stuff ready to take to Frank & Son for the Ramon Martinez appearance. Since my son was awake, I went back to bed and brought him over to be close with him. Bam! I fell asleep around 7 and did not wake up until 10:15.

Martinez was scheduled to sign at 10:30 a.m. I quickly got up and checked with my baby and wife to see if they were o.k. with me leaving for a few hours. I wasn't going to get mad if I didn't go. I was trying to go to the Shawn Green book signing last Thursday at Glendale but I couldn't go. Too much house chores. Baby and Wife were good. I left the house and arrived at Frank & Son at 11:25. There was a huge line to purchase tickets. Of course, everyone was there for Andre Ethier or Tommy Lasorda. I did not need anything from them. How many autographs do you really need from them?

Luckily, a employee asked if anybody in line was there to purchase autographs tickets for Martinez. I was happy. I was able to cut line and go in the front and purchase my ticket.

Went over to the Martinez line. I didn't really have to wait since I was almost the last one. I just purchased one autograph ticket since I didn't need anything from him. I got many stuff signed from him back in the mid-90's. Martinez had a personal assistant (or Chauffeur) that would do many things for Martinez. This personal assistant is good friends with my dad. Let's call him Tito since I feel unconformable posting his name here. Tito had access to the Latin ballplayers of the Dodgers and of the opponents that would come to Dodger Stadium. Tito would take me and my brother to games hours before the gates would open. It was great. I can tell you stories but I might get killed. :)

I remember Tito taking us to the mansion of Martinez. I wouldn't say it was a mansion but it was a beautiful home. I told Martinez yesterday at the signing that Tito would take me to games and his house. He was surprised. He said "I just saw Tito, he's doing good".

The reason I came to this signing is because I needed his autograph on my Dodger seat. It was great to get it signed. I'm basically getting signatures of Dodgers that made a impact on the organization. No current players.

After getting the seat signed. I stayed for a while to shoot some pictures. Here's one for the females. They went crazy for Andre Ethier.

A reader recognized me and showed me what he got signed from Ethier. I believe it was Kenny. Please forgive me if I got your name wrong.

Evan from one of my favorite blogs "Opinion of Kingman's Performance" was in the house! He already blogged about his day in Frank & Son. {linked here}

Thanks to Frank & Son, Hall of Fame Sports, Ramon Martinez, Evan and all the readers that I met. It was a pleasure. I hope everyone is doing better than the current Dodgers, who have yet to win on this homestand.

Happy Father's Day!
