Default Post a picture of yourself with a baseball player!

This thread is meant to celebrate that time you were in the presence of greatness. Post a pic you took with a baseball player! Post one or several.

My time with the Babe ... seems like so long ago.

It's hard to top meeting my 2 favorite players!
Mike Trout

Bryce Harper
I'm sitting on the top of the barrier, which is why I look short.

I really like this one, where I make the 6'2" Dave Stewart look like a small man.

I have an oldie as well, when I met Bob Feller. I am fairly certain this was the first celebrity photo op I ever had, other than camera day at the Kingdome.

I get absolutely no style points for these, but I am so glad to have them now.

My boys with Andrew Stevenson at Nats Winterfest. My oldest is 10... might be taller than Andrew in a year or two. LOL.

Check out my youngest son's right hand (left to you). Savage.

Just a couple to choose from. I enjoy seeing all of the pictures. It's always fun to meet some of these players.

One of my favorite players to watch

Meet and greet with Cal Ripken Jr. a few years back in Chicago.
At least that's what I thought it was going to be.
It was actually a mini clinic with Cal and a few helpers.
Had a great time and Cal was as gracious as they come.
Pretty cool to be able to tell people that I played catch with Cal Ripken Jr.!
Beat part? It was a free trip!
Not the best pic, but it's the only one I have on my phone.Click image for larger version

As an Athletic Trainer with the Wisconsin Woodchucks of the Northwoods league I've met some very nice players. I worked with former Milwaukee Brewers player Jim Gantner for a couple years. He brought some of his old friends along.

My favorite one here, short story is I asked some of our players who are Collegiate baseball players and most had NO IDEA who Robin Yount was. Geez.
