    Dangit, Gary. I was going to ask him that.

    No signature, but there's pine tar on it. And that is his name engraved in the bat. If Wockenfuss ever does a public signing, I'll have it signed. But I'm not concerned with it.

      Why do I have to be the straight guy all the time in this shtick?
      Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

        Because my posts are funny.

        I wouldn't get game-used stuff autographed. To me, once something has been used in a game it acquires an aura - it becomes "sacred," if you will - and an autograph would detract from that.

          If I wasn't so humor-challenged, I would have known that

          Perhaps, but I will hunt that Mets guy down

            Good point. If it wasn't autographed 25+ years ago when we got it, and it's still treasured, the autograph won't do anything for it. It's not an item that is about value to me.

              I don't know much a Wockenfuss autograph is worth. It's still nice to meet a guy & tell him the story, and I've seen player's faces light up when someone shows them one of their GU equipment

                That's an excellent idea. I probably won't get the bat signed, but I'm sure he'd like to hear how I got the bat, and he may even tell me something I don't know (which is pretty much everything but the very basic) about the actual day Wockenfuss passed the bat on.

                If that day comes.

                  I believe that players are always amused when a fan shows up with something that they have not seen in a long time or if ever or a piece of game used equipment. I have shown up at various events with pictures of a player that I actually took at some point in the past rather than the photo file pics that most people buy or have. They always ask questions. For instance last summer, I caught Danny Graves in Durham. I had a 12 X 18 photo of him pitching against the Yankees in Great American Ball Park back in the '02 season. He asked me about the photo and we talked for a few minutes about it. The same thing happened with a photo that I took of Todd Coffey and Homer Bailey of the Reds. Bailey is usually surly but he saw the print that I took and he quickly obliged me with his auto along with a personalization which was fine with me.
