Our road trip to meet Matt Holliday
Yesterday, Ballhawk Shawn (click here for his blog) and I made a road trip down to Rosemont, Illinois to meet Matt Holliday. I wanted to go because a few years back, I caught Holliday’s 19th career home run at PNC Park.
Of the 47 game home run baseballs I have snagged over the years, only 25 I’ve had signed by the players that hit them.
He seemed interested that I had presented an actual game home run of his (probably doesn’t happen often) to be signed.

This day I would also meet Hall of Famer Paul Molitor. Being the Brewers fan that I am, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to meet “Molly” again.

Finally, here’s Paul Molitor posing with The Happy Youngster…he doesn’t seem too interested, does he)?
Good times had by all!
because she’s so freakin’ cool!
