That's pretty good considering he was retired when you were born.
It was the strangest thing. I wasn't a huge fan of Basebll in 1999, so i just threw him the ball. He was signing autographs so I just threw him the ball. He signed it and tossed it back. My Dad asked me who signed it, but the both of us had no idea. The guy who sat behind me said it was Orlando Cepada, and my responce was "Ah, crap, I wanted someone good" . Took me awhile to find out who he was.

Most of the players arrived between 2:30 and 3:30. I was able to get the following autographs in about a 1 1/2 hour time: Torii Hunter, Shannon Stewart, Kyle Lohse, Mike Cuddyer, Jason Bartlett, Luis Rivas, Joe Nathan, Juan Castro, Dave Gassner, and Mike Redmond. There were about 20 people at the entrance which had a metal barrier that kept the fans seperated from the players, and most players had no problem signing whatever anyone wanted them to. They were happy to sign for all fans. I was told by some of the crowd that players usually arrive 5 hours before the game start time. It worked for me in Cleveland and now in Minneapolis. Guess I answered my own question!!
