  • Tips for Spring Training autographs?

    I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or tips for getting autographs at Legends Field. I'm taking my 5 year old son to his first game there on Sun, March 19. Since the game is on a Sunday, what's the best time to get there? Will the team practice on Sunday morning? If so, what time? Where's the best spot before and after practice? Where's the best spot before and after the game?

    My advice is don't bother. It's difficult to get anywhere near the players, especially during the practices. I doubt that games are any easier.

    If you do try, good luck. Legends Field is a wonderful stadium and it's beautiful weather this time of year. I just got back from Florida and miss the warm weather already.

      When I was there last year,it seemed that after the game down the third baseline was the best bet.Not all players stopped by to sign,but all players go by to get on the team bus. I remember Gordon and couple others stopping by to sign autographs, but you need to get down there right after the game along the fence and try to get guys' attention. Best of Luck!

        We've been to spring training a few times and have gone a couple of hours before the game while some players are working out on the practice field. You need to get lucky and have one of them come over to the fence and sign autographs. Last year Rivera stayed for over an hour signing. I heard the day before Giambi did the same thing. Once a player starts signing it becomes a mad house and you have to push your way in closer. Let them know you are getting an autograph for your kids so they don't think you are going to sell it on ebay.
