On Saturday June 7, 2014, Howie Kendrick was scheduled to sign autographs at the Cox Solutions Store in Irvine, CA. Howie was scheduled to appear from 12p to 1pm. I couldn't pass up on a free signing less than 20 minutes from my house, so I grabbed a ROMLB and headed to the signing. I arrived around 11am and found the line was over 100 deep. Members of the Angels Strike Force were handing out wristbands.
I was given wristband 160 and was told the first 200 people in line were guaranteed autographs. At approximately 11:50am it was announced that Kendrick had arrived and would begin signing early. The line moved steadily as they allowed 15 people at a time into the store. Also, no posed photos were allowed and it was a strict one item per person. These restrictions always keeps the line moving. It was my first time meeting Kendrick and he appeared very cordial. I arrived at the front of the line at around 12:45pm. I shook his hand and thanked him for the autograph.
This signing was very well organized. Wristbands were handed out to prevent line cutting and there was a designated roped off area for fans to line up. Take a look at my pictures below.
