I went to see the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes (Giants) play the Eugene Ems (Padres) on Tuesday and Wednesday night. We didn't stay for much of Tuesdays game, I think we left in the 2nd inning. The two year old granddaughter was running my wife into the ground. I took some cards I had made to get signed and took a lot of pictures. The cards at the left I got signed Tuesday before the game. The Trae Santos was a card I had made for him last year, but he had to go home for a funeral before he could sign it. Homer Bush, Robbie Wine and Nelson Cruz were all pictures I got off the internet. Trea Turner, Jose Urena and Marcus Davis were all pictures that The Prowling Cat took when he went to a game in Eugene on July 3.
I took a picture of all the Ems pitcher just as they lined up for the National Anthem on Tuesday. I printed it out and took to the game with me Wednesday night. I got to stay for the whole game because I went by myself. One of the nice things, to me anyway, is I just take a folding chair and set right next to the bullpen and talk with the pitchers. I managed to get 12 of the fifteen guys in the picture to sign it. I still have a few more games to get the other 3.
I took a whole bunch of pictures so I can make cards of as many guys as possible.
