Continuing my story from previous images, I was stationed in the National League signing room where I was giving away Dell laptops to the players – an official gift from Dell and MLB.
The signing room starts off as boxes of baseballs and bats that the players sign which are then given to the Commissioner, staff, partners, etc. But as the day progresses, players ask club house attendant to grab some of their jerseys and bats so they too can get autographed memorabilia from the All-Star Game. Eventually, minutes before game time, we had to shut the room down (Albert Pujols starting hitting balls in the cage and it got quite scary).
I was delighted to meet and chat with the players, many lined up in this photos. Some, like Josh Johnson, literally sat down and autographed every single item. And almost all were very thankful for the laptop.
