    There were three autograph sessions. The Rays...being the Rays...screwed up the waiting lines so that many people were cut off from the second and third sessions. I was one of the unlucky ones who were stopped short of entering the cattle pen maze line for the second session.

    Went to watch AAA/AA Tigers @ AAA/AA Pirates. Game was cancelled. Pirates minor leaguers were working out in intrasqaud games. Got Kevin Newman on a blowup of his 2016 FSL Top Prospects card. Then went to Dunedin and caught the AAA/AA Phillies vs AAA/AA Blue Jays in progress. Got Eric Wedge on a 8 x 10 and Jeff Beliveau on a 2011 Pan Americas Games screenshot and a action pic frm the same tournament (different games). He played for Team USA. Beliveau is a fellow New Englander and we both alumni of Florida Atlantic U so we chatted for a bit. All items signed with a Black Sharpie.
