2 game sweep and CAL!

Here are some autographs and pictures from last Thursday's O's-Twins game and alumni autograph signing. I did not have autos from 2 of the 3 Orioles alumni at the game, Curt Motton and Mike Cuellar, so I knew I was going to have a good day.

Larry Sheets, Mike Cuellar & Curt Motton

It also seemed like the Twins were a very good signing team. I just missed out on Brendan Harris and Francisco Liriano (a fantasy baseball crush of mine from 2007 who signed down the line and at the end of the dugout). Luckily, Joe Nathan was an even better signer and I swear the guy signed for 150 fans and took pictures with half of them. That's pretty rare for an elite player like Joe.

Joe signed 2 for me, Scott Baker was also nice

As were Kevin Slowey & Craig Breslow

This game was yet another example of my Berg-itis or the Berg Flu
(Those are my tentative names for the fact that I somehow always see Brad Bergesen pitch, even when it was not my intent, and at times a surprise)

Wiggy & Mauer

And look who decided to make a surprise appearance at the game
That's Cal with his daughter Rachel. He signed for a number of fans before being escorted away by security to avoid a mob scene. I only took a picture from afar since I don't like to bother former players who come as fans, especially when they are with their families. But I will take pictures to prove I was there!
