In Person Autograph Event: Eaton, Collmenter, Corbin, and Hernandez
The Diamondbacks have had an event each of the last couple of years at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino the night before Fan Fest. I went two years ago, but missed it last year. This year, Larry, a.k.a. Moe of the blog My 2008 Topps Set Blog tipped me off to the event. I hadn't heard about it so I was very thankful. Adam Eaton, Josh Collmenter, David Hernandez and Wade Miley were scheduled to attend. Miley was replaced by Miguel Montero a day or so ago and then he did not end up coming either. Patrick Corbin was there in his place. It was great and I got to visit with not only Larry, but also my good friends Joe and Erika. Joe runs the blog, Hello, Victory! I took my two oldest boys and we had a great time! We brought cards for Eaton, Collmentor, and Hernandez, but weren't planning on Corbin. They supplied team issued photos that are actually pretty nice so we multiple autographs from each of them. Looking forward to Fan Fest tomorrow!
