Yo gents! I don't post a lot here but I read the site regularly. This year for the first time I will be attending Fan Appreciation Day this Saturday.
Got any tips for how to get the most out of it?
I also went to my first Spring Training this year and I learned a lot about how to get autographs, what to bring with you, all that sort of stuff. I mean, I'm even wondering if I want to lug my big camera around since it will be crowded and like a thousand degrees outside.
I learned from Spring Training that you are probably not going to get the one autograph you want, (cough, Bryce Harper, cough). I brought a bat to get signed and stupidly brought one with an engraved autograph of Derek Jeter (long story, don't judge me) that ended up getting signed by Reggie Jackson. I brought a bunch of balls and the autographs ended up in weird places on the balls.
Anyway, I've procrastinated. How easy is it to get autographs? Do you recommend playing cards, photos, those white panel balls? Is everyone and their mother seeking the elusive RGIII autograph?
Thanks in advance for any pointers you can give me! Go Skins!
