minor league mania

Robinson Cano is starting his rehab tonight with the Tampa Yankees. Normally I would be going to get his autograph and Tampa’s coach Luis Sojo. For that reason here’s today’s lesson and story. Minor league games are very good for getting autographs, whether it is someone who is a high prospect or someone on rehab. The higher level you are the more likely you are to have a major leaguer come through town. Triple A almost always gets the players while Single A almost never does. But last year Jim Thome attempted to go through rehab startiing with the Clearwater Threshers. There were only two of us truly going for his autograph and this one little girl who was getting everybody. She asked Jim Thome when he stopped what his name was and only because I overhead him say “Jim” was I able to get an autograph from this almost guaranteed 500 hr hall-of famer.
