On Saturday May 26, 2012, Hall of Fame Sports hosted one of their Dodger Days autograph sessions at Frank and Son Collectible Show. Scheduled to sign were A.J. Ellis, Juan Rivera, Javy Guerra, Kenley Jansen and Rubby De La Rosa. Although most of the players in attendance sign often at Camelback Ranch and Dodger Stadium, I decided to attend this signing. I made the decision to go since I wasn't able to make it out to Spring Training this year. It was a last minute decision and arrived at approximately 11:15 am just as A.J. Ellis and Juan Rivera were finishing up their sessions.
I was cutting it so close, Ellis and Rivera weren't even on stage anymore. They were in the back signing items for the promoters. I bought my autograph ticket and was escorted back stage to a corner where Ellis was a really nice guy and thanked me for coming out. Since I was the only fan back there, I felt funny about busting out my camera and asking for a picture. I was next escorted over to where Rivera was sitting signing baseballs and pictures for the promoters. Rivera was a quiet but nice.
Javy Guerra and Kenley Jansen were signing on stage and there wasn't much of a line left so I walked right up. Guerra and Jansen were also extremely nice and Guerra was pretty talkative asking how I was doing. After about 20 more minutes, Rubby De La Rosa's session began. There were approximately 30 people in line and the line moved rather quickly.
I was in and out of Frank and Son in about an hour with my five autographs. There wasn't much of a crowd and it definitely helped make the session an enjoyable one.
