GOD, how did I not remember to put this. Nice.

Bonds/Kent/Snow Signed ball (in person), bag of seeds from Giants dugout
Jelous!!! :-t

I play on a travelling team called the Sonoma Country Rebels (2005 Mickey Mantle State Champs ;-D ). My coach knows someone that works within the Giants organization, not sure who, and it started when he got J.T. Snow to come do an appearance/fundraiser. Then next summer he surprised the team by bringing Lowry to practice for pictures/autographs/discussions. Later that fall Lowry came back with Johsnon to do another fundraiser. Coach needed someone to go pick up DJ from the airport, so I got to ride in the limo down there and then got to talk to him the whole ride back. Both of the fundraisers were more of just an appearance, but when Noah came to the practice we all got to talk to him about pitching, big league life, everything. It was sweet. [/quote]
