Player Appearance: Tony Gwynn Jr.

Dodger outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. made an appearance today at the Metro PCS Store in East Los Angeles. He was scheduled to sign autographs from 12:00-1:00. 

I arrived at the location at 9:45, and there were about 10 people in line waiting. I wasn't expecting many people to be there because he signed the day before, plus there were many other Dodger appearances around SoCal today.

While waiting in line, the Metro PCS staff passed out ticket vouchers, and other Dodger swag. They also gave us tickets for a raffle. Old School radio station 93.5 KDAY was on hand entertaining the crowd.

TGJ arrived on time. When he got there, I'd say there were 50 people in line. The Metro PCS staff told us we could get two autographs each and take a picture with him.

Once Gwynn got to the signing table, the line moved right away. I had him sign a ball and my autograph hat.

Thanks to Tony Gwynn Jr, Metro PCS and for event info. Once again, it was great hanging out with Mike from Nomo's Sushi Platter. I also want to give a shout out to Kenny and Alisha, it was nice meeting the both of you!


  1. I had a good time today too. The signings are always fun and a great way to chat with other Doyer fans.

  2. It definitely is nice meeting other fans.

  3. Cool that you got two items signed! Sounds like the event ran smooth.

  4. True - It was too easy. There wasn't anyone there.

  5. Sounds like the signing the day before. I got there around 9:30 and there were probably about 8 - 10 people total too (including myself). My recap is here:
