I mentioned that while Bridgeport was in town this past weekend we got to see our friend Luis Lopez. He has had a long professional baseball career and is closing in on 2,000 minor league hits...only 7 more! We've had the opportunity to get to know Luis over the past few years and he is definitely one of the good guys of baseball. He has always signed autographs with a smile, played the game hard, and been a great guy to look up to.
Saturday night he came out of the clubhouse before the game and handed us a bat. It was not cracked but was a game used bat and he signed it, "God bless you guys, Luis Lopez" This one is definitely going in our sports room on display! He was sporting one of the "Team Up For Alopecia Areata" bands this weekend that we gave him and started out the game 3-3 helping him get closer to his 2,000! Thanks Luis!
