Luis Gonzalez Signing!

Last Friday the Diamondbacks had an event at a local Sprint store featuring D-Backs great Luis Gonzalez.

We got there about an hour and 15 minutes before he was scheduled to be there. Just like the event a few weeks ago with Yasmany Tomas, they provided pizza and cold bottled water while we waited.

Baxter showed up about the same time as Gonzo and we were able to grab a quick picture before going inside to meet Gonzo.

They were also doing a drawing throughout the event and I won 4 tickets to a D-Backs game of my choice. I picked the July 2nd game which is Paul Goldschmidt bobblehead night. 

Gonzo was great as usual! He probably spent about 5 minutes talking to my boys while he signed our autographs. He asked them what they were doing this summer, if they played baseball and what positions they played, how they did in school, who was the biggest trouble maker, that sort of stuff.

I got this D-Backs Insider magazine signed by Travis Lee, Greg Swindell, and David Dellucci at the Alumni game back on August 30, 2014. Feels good to get it finished.

This photo was probably from about 5 years ago. We had gone to an event at a Cox store and met Gonzo. Cox took the pictures and printed them out and gave them to us.

Gonzalez signed a bunch of the team issued postcards and so we each got one of them before we left.


  1. Wow - that's a lot of autographed goods! Looks like you all made out like bandits. Luis appears to be a genuinely good dude; also, one of my favorite short term Cubs.

  2. I have to ask, is Gonzo pointing to your trouble maker in that one photo? LOL
    The Dbacks Insider looks great, especially with all of the blue sigs.

  3. Great stuff. Especially love that program!
