Kerry Wood is my son Wyatt's favorite player, and I got an autograph from him one time when I won this Comm Ed contest Kim (my wife) entered me in.
I won tickets to a Cub/Sox game, and got to bring Flynn and Grog into the ballpark early and get a tour.
We sat in the dugout, saw Billy Williams pitching to his grandson under the right field bleachers, stood in Sammy's right field spot, and got to meet reserve infielder Jeff Huson.
Jeff and Grog went to high school together at Mingus Union High School near Sedona Arizona, so it was weird listening to them catch up.
Anyway, we also got to sit right behind the Cub dugout when everyone was warming up.
I yelled, "Hey Wood! Can you sign this ball for my son?"
I'd never done anything like that.
He came right over and signed, and then of course EVERYBODY asked him, so I felt pretty dorky.
